Boarding school for girls

Columbus Girls Academy is located on the border of Columbus, Georgia, and Seale, Alabama. Although the property is officially located in Seale, we are headquartered in Columbus, Georgia.

The beautiful campus is nestled on 177 acres of rolling hills with a 35-acre lake. There are four student dorms, a recreation building, an educational building, a laundry facility, and a main lodge on the lake where the kitchen, dining room, and offices are contained, as well as a large conference center with hotel rooms. The campus has a beautiful swimming pool, baseball field, volleyball court, hiking trails, fishing, and golf course.


The campus has a significant historical past. Indian Trail, the main road leading onto the campus, is the beginning of the historic “Trail of Tears.” In 1839, all of the Indian tribes of the Southeastern United States, Cherokee, Creek, Yuchi, and others, were removed from their land and forced to walk from this area to the new Indian Territory in Oklahoma. On that long journey, nearly 20,000 people lost their lives to the bitter elements of that cold winter. Thus, the name, “Trail of Tears.”

While that was a tragedy, some time ago, a small group of Yuchi Indians visited our campus to experience this historical site where their ancestors once lived. Their Pastor, a Yuchi Chief himself, shared with us that when the people began the journey, they proclaimed: “Always moving forward, never looking back.”

We believe this historical site is in the midst of making history once again. For the countless young lives that will be impacted by the ministry of Teen Challenge, for them, this will be the end of their personal “Trail of Tears.”

I don’t look back, I lengthen my stride, and I run straight toward the goal to win the prize that God’s heavenly call offers in Christ Jesus.  Phil 3:13,14

THE FOLLOWING IS TO HELP US BE FOUND IN SEARCH, IT DOES NOT REFLECT OUR PROGRAM OR LICENSING:  Should you need help finding affordable boarding schools, girls Teen Challenge school, boarding schools with therapyteen challenge for boys, or affordable 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 Christian boarding 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 – a school for troubled girls.
