Michelle Medema – Admissions
Teen Challenge Prayer Mountain Boys Academy accepts new students on a year-round basis at our campus in Southwestern Georgia. We often have availability for immediate enrollment of your boy. We enroll adolescent boys ages 13-17, who are struggling with anger, academic failure or expulsion, and behavioral issues.
Inquire Now – When you call, we will discuss your son’s needs and your family’s situation, as well as answer your questions about our program. You will find that our program costs much less than other similar facilities, due to the generous support of donors and local churches.
Application and Enrollment Process
Our enrollment process begins with an interview between our Intake Coordinator and the parent/guardian to ensure that the prospective student is a candidate for our program. After the interview an introductory email will be sent to the parent that includes an application for admission and a thorough supply requirement list that details the items that must accompany a student into our program. The potential student must have a physical and required blood work completed by a physician before enrollment into our academy. Once all the admission requirements are met, an appointment may be made with Prayer Mountain Boys Academy for enrollment.
Prayer Mountain Boys Academy cannot enroll students who:
- Have a serious mental illness that is not manageable without psychiatric medication
- Have demonstrated aggressive same-sex predatory behaviors
- Have significant developmental delay, brain damage or retardation
- Have serious and uncontrollable fits of physical aggression
- Have serious addictions to chemical substances
- Are violent, or who have been convicted of violence or arson
- Have a significant or communicable health condition or illness requiring ongoing care
- Have serious milk or gluten allergies (however, we CAN work with boys who have peanut allergies)
Once we have an idea that your son will be a good match for our program, we will send you an Application along with additional forms required for enrollment. Once your son is accepted and all admissions criteria are met, we will work with you to set a date for admission.
Prosper Healthcare Lending
Prayer Mountain Boys Academy has partnered with Prosper HealthCare Lending as a potential lender. Prosper HealthCare Lending simplifies the process of paying for treatment. Working with a national network of specialized lenders, our compassionate loan consultants will help you find the most suitable financing option while maintaining the highest levels of confidentiality. Only after you have started the application process and we deem your son a good fit for our program, you can start the easy loan approval process by clicking the link below.
Church or Civic Organization
Sometimes the church or civic organization that a parent belongs to will assist with treatment costs. Discussing your situation with the Pastor of your church or President of your group may lead to financial assistance.
Most families network with their friends and family to help raise the funds required for the program. Please remember that even though Teen Challenge is a 501c(3) organization that we are not able to provide a tax-deductible receipt for payments towards tuition or schooling costs.
Typically, insurance does not pay for any part of your boy’s time at Prayer Mountain academy since we are a boarding school, not a licensed residential treatment center (such facilities often cost 2-3 times more than what we charge).
