Welcome to Columbus Girls Academy
Boarding School for Girls Who are Struggling with Behavior, Education, or Life-Controlling Issues
Columbus Girls Academy is a year-round Christian boarding school with a specialty of helping girls ages 12-17 who are struggling with rebellion, social awkwardness, academic failure, respect for authority, or who are self-destructing or exhibiting dangerous behavior. A significant percentage of the girls in our care were adopted or abused as younger children and developed emotional and relational problems in their adolescent years.
We offer an amazing campus and a loving staff in an affordable program that is just for girls. We feature a first-class school, counseling, therapeutic and character-building activities, and spiritual support. We repair behavioral issues and build a stronger future for girls who are responding negatively to adoption, relational discord, peer pressure, or other trauma.
We now feature Equine Therapy in our therapeutic program.
Every student has the opportunity to achieve a premium accredited education that is well-rounded while she is on our campus.
CGA is a year-round therapeutic boarding school, which allows our students to also achieve phenomenal academic progress. Our in-class teachers and partnership with Liberty University Online produce an educational atmosphere that spurs a desire to succeed, while their peers who have been here longer also encourage them to reach their full potential.
