I have had the privilege and honor to serve as an Educator for this ministry for the last 10 years. During my career at Shepherds Hill Academy I have seen the lives of so many young people improve. Not just the lives of the students who attend the academy, but the lives of their family as well. Once the students are taught Christian principles for living, boundaries and discipline just come natural to them and their families. I honestly believe God uses this ministry to change the lives of our troubled youth and to heal hurting families.

Troubled youth are taught Christian principles for living. As a result, their lives are turned around to the point where they can be productive citizens in society.

Increase their capacity to accept more students so they could improve more lives.

I began working at Shepherd's Hill Academy in early 2005. My experience has far surpassed my expectations of this Therapeutic Boarding School. Although nestled in the rural mountains of NE GA, this school offers cutting edge perspectives on contemporary culture, youth, and families. I highly suggest that anyone interested in this Academy call them or stop by for a face-to-face meeting.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

families from across the country.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

strongly suggest building a considerable support base.

My role at Shepherd's Hill Academy is to work with the Girl's Residential Program. Since my time here I have seen significant change in the lives of so many teenage girls.

It has been a blessing to observe these changes and watch these teens grow up into Godly women.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my spiritual development in Christ, character development, leadership ability, managerial roles, and how to apply a Biblical Worldview

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Improve on the fundraising efforts to make residential care cheaper for families with lower income.

I have worked at SHA since 2004 and the Lord has changed my life through the other staff and the students. The biggest thrill is watching students, who are often on their way to jail, and live within relational misery, come alive again and learn to respect authority and recognize the reason behind living God's way. Christianity isn't just a philosophy or a style of living, it is following a real person and submitting to his way's because he knows best how to live life to the fullest. It has changed my life watching students slowly become the person they were designed to be and relax within themselves and the arms of grace.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

There is no aspect of my life God has not touched through SHA.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would make SHA very well known to the church that we would be prayerfully and financially supported in order to be able to afford to take on more kids who can't pay for our services.

SHA's un wavering foundation on the Word of God if very unique and what makes it effective.

I’ve personally seen broken, hurting families come together and heal at Shepherd’s Hill Academy. Troubled teenagers, who their parents did not know what to do with, come in kicking and screaming. Within a couple of months, or sooner, these teens are on the road to recovery. Their whole demeanor and appearance changes. It’s amazing how the love of Christ, taught & modeled to the troubled teens, makes all the difference in their life! Shepherd’s Hill Academy has some of the most compassionate staff who truly cares about the lives of troubled teens and their families!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Troubled teens and their families.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the good works they do to more people.
