Don’t Put Your Boy in a Therapeutic Boarding School Until You’ve Talked to Us.

  • Steve H. Former Student

    “God directed my steps and changed me one step at a time. He healed all the anger and everything else that was in my life before. I figured out that I couldn’t do things on my own, but that God was the only one who could direct my life.”

What Others Say About Pine Mountain Boys Academy

“I’ve been a volunteer at Teen Challenge Pine Mountain Boys Academy for the past four years. While working with the boys in the kitchen I have come to understand that these are not bad boys, just boys that have made bad decisions. I have seen boys arrive with hardened hearts, broken spirits, and messed up lives. I have had the privilege of watching these same boys let God soften their hearts, heal their spirits, and give purpose to their lives. What a blessing they have been to me.”
