Boarding school for girls

Admission Steps

Free Application and Enrollment Process

Columbus Girls Academy is a year-round Christian boarding school for girls ages 12 – 17. We offer a loving, relational, and affordable program just for girls with life-controlling issues. We feature a first-class school, equine therapy, spiritual support, and counseling to repair behavioral issues brought on by trauma, adoption, family discord, or peer pressure.

The first step to learn more about CGA is to call us at (334) 947-1010, or fill in our INQUIRY FORM.

The quick enrollment of your girl begins with you speaking to our Admission Coordinator to determine if your girl is a good candidate for our program. We’ll then send you an Application for Admission (free).

Our admissions team will work hard to review your Application and gather all the information we need to determine whether there is a reasonable expectation for success through enrollment at CGA.  If it is determined that your teen is not a candidate, we will help you find another program for your girl. We care about your family’s success, whether that is with our program or another quality program.

Please Note: For your girl’s safety, CGA does not enroll girls who:
  • Are pregnant, or who are already the parent of a child
  • Have a serious mental illness that is not manageable without psychiatric medication
  • Have demonstrated sexual predatory behaviors
  • Have significant developmental delay or brain damage
  • Have dangerous fits of anger and physical aggression
  • Are violent, or who have been convicted of violent behavior or arson
  • Have a significant or communicable health condition or illness requiring ongoing care.

CGA is accredited through Teen Challenge USA with honors. To get the enrollment process moving along, call us at (334) 947-1010

A Recent Testimonial

“We wanted to write to tell you all how incredibly impressed we are with Columbus Girls Academy. The Godly teachings and love are so very apparent every time we step foot on the CGA campus. Our daughter came to CGA with a willingness to give up everything including her family in order to continue a very unhealthy relationship. She had lost her focus on Christ and did not feel worthy of life.

After attending CGA for 5 months she has realized her ‘wrongs,’ asked for forgiveness, and now is in the process of forgiving herself and beginning to look to Christ as her Lord. We are now seeing her filled with love, joy, compassion, honesty, and a strong willingness to live according to God’s will for her life. We are convinced that if we had not taken the difficult step to enroll her at CGA we are not sure where she would be.

We took the biggest step of faith we both have ever taken in enrolling our daughter in CGA. When you love someone so much you will do whatever it takes to get them right with the Lord. CGA has been the perfect place for our daughter to get the biblical truth from a loving staff on a gorgeous campus with every detail carefully planned. We cannot express how pleased we have been with our daughter’s transition and now goal towards leading a more Godly life. She is making wonderful progress! We know she has plenty of more programming at CGA, but we completely trust your guidance with our sweet daughter.

We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done for our daughter and the other students at CGA. You ALL make them feel Christ’s love through your actions, giving, and planning. Words cannot express our appreciation for the leadership this Godly school encompasses. So many lives are being affected through the loving programs CGA offers their students and families. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!”

THE FOLLOWING IS TO HELP US BE FOUND IN SEARCH, IT DOES NOT REFLECT OUR PROGRAM OR LICENSING:  Should you need help finding troubled girl schools, boarding schools in texas, schools for troubled teenstherapeutic boys ranches, or therapeutic boarding schools, please let us know.  Parents looking for therapeutic boarding schools for troubled girls and military schools for girls typically have a troubled girl.  Such therapeutic boarding schools for girls and girls homes provide help for troubled teens. Other girls-only therapeutic schools and Christian boarding schools for girls are places to send troubled youth.  The difference between an all-girl military school and a troubled teen therapeutic school has to do with discipline and methods they use. Typical boarding schools or military schools are not places to send troubled youth, since they have no therapy and little discipline for troubled girls — they usually will not enroll troubled teens and are not considered troubled teen schools, unlike therapeutic boarding schools, residential treatment centers for troubled girls, and Christian boarding schools just for troubled teen girls.
