Next Step Transition:

Upon transitioning to the Next Step Program, the resident moves out of the wilderness and into a home on campus with 24-hour staff supervision. They are allowed more individual freedom and chances to make “right choices.”

They also have the opportunity to gain back certain privileges they did not enjoy in the wilderness, such as TV and video games (in moderation and with supervision, of course). When counselors and staff feel the time is right, residents can earn the privilege of getting a driver’s license and/or acquire a part-time job.

The main objective of Shepherd's Hill Academy is to provide a fully-accredited year-round Therapeutic Christian boarding school for the students of our program.
