This school was a true godsend for my daughter. Nowhere else on earth do I think I could have found staff that would love and care for her as they did.
I was so angry at my parents for sending me to Columbus Girls Academy. I thought they couldn t understand what was happening in my life or how I felt, and I wished they would just leave me alone. But as time passed at Columbus Girls Academy, I realized how angry I had been at a lot of things, and how that anger was destroying me. Eventually I could even tell my parents thanks for doing what they did for me. I might never have known peace except for Columbus Girls Academy.
Columbus Girls Academy helped our daughter through a crisis point in her life. The admissions staff worked quickly to identify his/her need and get through the enrollment process, so she got the help she needed right away. Columbus Girls Academy knows teenagers. They are equipped to give professional, effective care. They loved our daughter like their own. I don t know what we would have done without them.
Columbus Girls Academy taught our daughter that she is a precious child of God. Now she accepts that she is a person of value, and it has made all the difference in how she/he treats herself, her friends, and us her parents. She is a beautiful, confident young lady, doing well in school now and excited about the rest of her life
The parent weekends were a huge part of the turnaround we experienced during our year working with Columbus Girls Academy. The director taught us parenting principles straight from the Word of God, and he shared stories and encouragement straight from his heart. We feel better equipped now to parent all of our children well, not just our struggling teenager who is no longer struggling, but walking confidently in the truth of God s Word. Thank you, Columbus Girls Academy, for sharing God s heart for families!
I cannot say enough good things about this school. Our daughter recently graduated from CGA and has decided to stay for an internship for 6 months. The teachers and staff are caring, loving, godly people. They challenge the girls in many ways to stretch and grow them. They are prompt in their return calls and emails. I encourage any parents with a struggling teenage daughter to visit the campus and consider this school. It is a hard choice to send your daughter away but it was the best decision and our daughter is doing really good now.
We looked at several boarding schools before deciding to send our daughter to Columbus Girls Academy. In our opinion, it is the best of the best. Columbus Girls Academy is grounded in the Word of God and filled with caring, compassionate people. We felt loved from the very first phone call. From the quality of their counselors to the way they structure their days, Columbus Girls Academy does everything possible to help kids and their families get a new start. We feel so blessed for all that Columbus Girls Academy has done for our family.
The Columbus Girls Academy is a great program. I really liked their campus when I visited. Everything was clean. The girls obviously are required to keep their areas tidy. They also seem happy there. I know it is hard for them to be away but the staff definitely make the best of it. They have counselors and mentors. In fact, when a resident graduates, they can stay and become a mentor if they are doing well. The residents also are able to work on their high school credits and even graduate high school with an actual high school diploma. Overall this program is great for a struggling teen and they are also much lower cost then the other programs.
Programs like this have been successful in turning troubled teen girls around and giving them a second opportunity at success!
