Participation in all activities is required and completed as a group, supervised by staff members. Students are challenged daily in relationships as they interact with staff and their peers. Our environment is one that balances discipline with personal responsibility to create a positive peer culture. Our goal is to nurture students that make positive decisions that are not based on mandatory compliance, but rather where positive choices are made as a result of genuine concern for themselves and others.
As a regular part of the daily schedule students are required to participate in a rigorous exercise regimen. Prayer Mountain Boys Academy school credit is earned for each student’s participation in Physical Education.
Stewardship in Student Life
An organization core value for Prayer Mountain Boys Academy, we describe stewardship as “faithfully managing God’s call and resources”. Through daily chores our students are taught the importance of stewardship in the treatment of personal property as well at Prayer Mountain Boys Academy property. Students are responsible for keeping their personal areas neat at all times and work as a group to complete an assigned chore each day during the week. Students are taught to take pride in their hard work as students and staff members alike faithfully preserve our facility to be enjoyed for generations to come.
Choir and Drama Teams rehearse and perform at local churches, events and on-campus ceremonies. Under the direction of skilled Prayer Mountain Boys Academy staff, students are able to continue to grow and excel in their God-given talents.
Weekly Church Services
Students attend regular church services while at Prayer Mountain Boys Academy at Griffin First Assembly a local church three times a week, Sunday morning, Sunday evening and Wednesday night youth group services.
Weekly Chapel Services
On Thursday evening students and staff join together for campus-wide worship. This is a special time where the Prayer Mountain family is able to grow together, share in one another’s victories, and help to bear one another’s burdens in prayer.
At Prayer Mountain Boys Academy we want our students to understand that, contrary to popular belief among teens today, one can live a life that honors God and have fun at the same time. To demonstrate this Prayer Mountain Boys Academy staff go above and beyond to “create wow experiences” for our students, fun is allowed! Prayer Mountain Boys Academy students attend several youth conferences, Christian concerts, camping, white water rafting, and events throughout the year.
Our campus is filled with animals, which are cared for by the boys. It teaches them responsibility and care in handling God’s creatures.
As a reward for obedience and cooperation students are provided scheduled times of recreation throughout the week. At Prayer Mountain Boys Academy there are many facilities and opportunities for recreation right on our campus. On rainy days our students may enjoy recreational time indoors in our gymnasium.
Every evening before “lights out” at 10 pm, students take 30 minutes of “quiet time” for reading scripture, reflection and prayer.
