Shepherd’s Hill Farm is a Christian Therapeutic Boarding school. At Shepherd’s Hill Farm the student’s individual needs are placed as a priority; each child is treated on a case-by-case basis. Shepherd’s Hill Farm staff is emphatic about the utmost care of the residents, and this is constantly shown through honest communication, accountability, and discipleship. At Shepherd’s Hill Farm the residents have the opportunity to be removed from the chaos and distractions of every day life, and begin to thrive in a peaceful and serene environment. During their stay at Shepherd’s Hill Farm, the residents get treated respectfully and with great consideration from the staff. Each activity has the opportunity and propensity to be utilized as a therapeutic intervention; this is most often the case. Teaching opportunities are seized, and everyday activities are delicately and purposefully aimed at further developing the students’ character. If my children ever had to be sent to a therapeutic boarding school, I would choose Shepherd’s Hill Farm.

I do have a daughter currently enrolled at Shepherd’s Hill Farm! I can not say enough about this school and the program. I was a desperate parent who needed to save my daughter from drugs and the culture that of course comes along with it. Within the 6 months of her stay at Shepherd’s Hill Farm, my daughter had transformed into a young women who respects others as well as herself. She is excelling in her classes, and already looking into different colleges for when she graduates. I am certain that things would have turned out very different for my daugther had it not been for the competent and dedicated staff at Shepherd’s Hill Farm.
