“My daughter’s House of Hope experience was nothing short of a miracle. She was lost and had reached the point where everything suffered – her school, home and spiritual life. House of Hope’s disciplined program reconnected my daughter to everything – my wife and me, her siblings and God, a new attitude.” – Former Resident Parent
For residential treatment, we welcome teenage girls with emotional and behavioral problems, including defiance, disrespect of authority, anger issues, anxiety, depression, self-harm, suicidal ideation, drug or alcohol abuse, lying, stealing, social issues, academic problems, expulsion from school, and issues relating to past trauma. We offer assistance to families with teenagers who have lost respect for authority and no longer accept guidance from parents or teachers. We help teens that reject adult influence in their lives, and are lacking emotional development and maturity or have no care about their future. Many of the girls in our care were adopted or abused and are having related attachment and anxiety issues in their teenage years.
Our 2020 Tuition Rate
Our tuition rate for 2020 is $5,000/mo. Monthly Tuition includes all expenses for Hope Academy, counseling for residents and parents, parenting classes, room and board (food, etc.), transportation, and activities. Please note that this rate is significantly less than other therapeutic boarding schools because we are a nonprofit. Scholarships are available for those who qualify.
