Tatiana’s Story

Columbus Girls Academy

I want to express my gratitude to my family for believing in me when I couldn’t see the potential within myself. Despite the challenges and mistakes I made, they never lost faith in me. It wasn’t an easy decision for them to send me to Teen Challenge, but they knew it was the best option for my future. When I returned home, they put in the effort to help us all start anew, and I’m forever thankful for their unwavering support.

I also want to thank the staff at Teen Challenge. They stood by me during some of my darkest moments, providing guidance and encouragement when I needed it most. Their presence and belief in my ability to overcome obstacles gave me the strength to persevere.

I am also super grateful for the friendships I’ve formed with the incredible girls I’ve met at Teen Challenge. Their kindness, vulnerability, and compassion have taught me invaluable lessons about empathy and connection. I’ve made lifelong friends here, and each person I’ve encountered has left a lasting impact on my life.

I really couldn’t have done this journey without the love, support, and encouragement of my family, the staff at Teen Challenge, and the amazing friends I’ve made along the way. Their belief in me has inspired me to strive for a better future and I am deeply thankful for their presence in my life.

THE FOLLOWING IS TO HELP US BE FOUND IN SEARCH, IT DOES NOT REFLECT OUR PROGRAM OR LICENSING:  Should you need help finding , behavioral health treatment centers, boys ranchestroubled teen schools, or ranches for troubled teens, 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.
