With features that enhance content and functionality, this award-winning curriculum offers ease, accuracy, and quality academics.

Therapeutic Model:

Individual Therapy:
Individual therapy is provided by the primary therapist, and generally consists of approximately 60-90 minutes of therapy per week, which may take place in one session or split into two sessions.

Family Sessions:
Working together toward the progress as a family unit and the goals that each family has for their relationships with each other is what family therapy specifically focuses on.

In-house sessions with the family are at least every 8 weeks during our on-campus Parent-Day Weekend for parents who live out of state and approximately 2 – 4 weeks for parent who live in Florida.

Group Sessions:
Topics and issues are addressed according to what our student population is facing through group sessions. Group sessions are comprised of the student body, which all have the same primary therapist.

To further gain comfort and confidence, students are placed in a setting to hear other students’ life stories and see that they are struggling with issues that are very similar to the ones they are working on. Students will learn the importance of sharing within a safe and supportive culture and that their story can help and heal those that are with them.

Holistic & Biblical Approach

Each girl’s individualized treatment focus is considered from a holistic approach: mind (education & the word of God), body (nutrition & exercise), and spirit (accepting Christ & showing good fruits/living a biblical standard). A balance is created and the opportunity for a successful and joyful life is greatly enhanced when this approach is taken.
