girls academy

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, educational building, laundry facility and 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.

HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF OUR CAMPUS

The campus has a significant historical past. Indian Trail, the main road leading onto the campus, is the beginning of 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

Should you need help finding military academies, schools with therapy, teen counseling services or faith-based boarding schools, please let us know.  Parents looking for boarding schools for troubled girls and military schools for girls typically have a troubled girl.  Such boarding schools for girls and girls homes provide help for troubled teens. Other girls-only schools and therapeutic 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.  Military schools for teens are all about discipline, decorum, drills, and repetitiveness. Therapeutic schools, residential treatment centers, and therapeutic girls’ homes provide counseling and therapy, and they often use therapeutic tools like equine therapy or animal therapy. Typical 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.  Christian boarding schools for girls are an exception since they use a faith-based focus to bring about life transformation. Religious boarding schools can provide troubled teens with help in their troubled youth residential programs. So, many who are seeking military schools for girls may want to instead look for schools for troubled girls, where they will find therapeutic boarding schools, residential treatment centers for girls, and Christian boarding schools.
