Testimonials and Reviews of Pine Mountain 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.”

“My Grandson is currently enrolled in Pine Mountains Teen Challenge. When he arrived at Pine Mountain he was 17 and came directly from jail. He had dropped out of high School as a sophomore; he had become involved in drugs and was facing very serious legal issues. His family life was in disarray and he was a very angry young man. He had no spiritual focus or strength. The Pine Mountain Teen Challenge program has truly been God’s gift to him and also to our family. With God’s grace and the guidance and the support of the counselors, teachers and the entire staff at Pine Mountain our grandson has reclaimed his life. Though their help and with their year round school program he has completed his high school education, scored well on the ACT and is going on to college when he completes his program at Pine Mountain. The staff has helped with reconnecting the family’s communication with him. His legal issues have been resolved in such a way as to not affect his whole future. There have been many wonderful things happen as a result of our choosing Pine Mountain Academy. But foremost has been his finding God in his life and his commitment to seek Gods direction as he moves forward with that life.”

“Before Teen Challenge my son was angry. He was destructive. I did not think that he would make it in life. When I committed my son to the program and myself to the program and committed to the Word of God, things began to happen. They did not happen overnight. With love and intensive counseling from the Teen Challenge staff my son began to blossom and became more confident day by day. Today, he is happy. The anger is gone. Joy has come. Today he has a bright future with unlimited possibilities. Most important he knows and loves God. Thank you Teen Challenge for giving me my son back!”
