Pine Mountain Boys Academy is a year-round boarding school that transforms and mentors adolescent boys (ages 12-17) struggling with life-impacting behaviors, rebellion, academic failure, or careless attitudes. We help every boy excel in every bit of the talent and potential that God gave him. The year-round, adventure-learning program features 24/7 care, coaching, and counseling, with the overall goal of helping each boy prepare in all areas of his life for a productive and fulfilling future. We use such activities as wilderness adventure, mission trips, recreation and sports, agriculture training, and other methods to impact young men’s lives. It’s our vision to develop self-awareness in those we serve. Through education and modeling, we teach how vital community and authentic relationships are to us all! Pine Mountain Academy is an excellent way to make an impact on your son for the better for a lifetime based on the time-tested Teen Challenge approach, which has helped teens and families for over a half-century.

Academic Curriculum

Pine Mountain provides a self-paced curriculum, along with one-on-one instruction, allowing boys to gain mastery of subjects and earn missed credits toward a high school diploma. Students are dual enrolled in Alpha Omega Academy (AOA). Dual enrollment allows our students to be fully enrolled in our school while simultaneously taking online courses through Alpha Omega Academy. In addition to the oversight and assistance provided by our Pine Mountain Boys Academy staff, AOA provides certified distance learning teachers, a quality computer-based curriculum, record keeping and a wide variety of courses.

Therapeutic Approach

Pine Mountain therapy involves identifying why inappropriate behaviors are occurring, and then addressing erroneous assumptions that may be in place. Each student is specially assigned to the caseload of a Pine Mountain Boys Academy on-site counselor. Along with individual and group counseling, this counselor is also responsible to ensure a smooth delivery of all of Pine Mountain Boys Academy’s services to the student and family. Group counseling occurs on a regular basis, guided by the pastoral counselors on staff here at Pine Mountain Boys Academy. Students learn to constructively express their thoughts, ideas, and questions in an environment where each member is accepted and respected.

Testimonial

“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!” – Lester K.
