Shelterwood serves students with a unique approach to counseling, with a goal to move them toward real heart change. We’re focused on pursuing the hearts of kids. Because no two teens are the same, our certified therapists create an individualized program for each student at Shelterwood. Active therapies such as sand tray, recreation, adventure, equine, community service, art, gardening and music have proven to help Shelterwood students uncover issues, build relationships and provide clarity for moving forward in life.

Fully Accredited ACADEMICS

At Shelterwood, every student receives a top-tier education from our accredited school. Teens experience a low student-to-teacher ratio with individual attention; it’s the perfect setting to flourish. Combining a focus on core curriculum and accommodating individual needs, students receive an exceptional education. Students can truly flourish in the Shelterwood classroom.

Who We Are.

We at Shelterwood are compelled by the Gospel to transform the lives of teens. Jesus is at the center of all we do. We offer teens a community of people who are committed to their growth. Using the best therapies in treatment, brain function, equine, art, adventure, and service, Shelterwood stands alone in its ability to foster change in the hearts and minds of its students. Hear more about our faith-based approach to true recovery from Jim Subers, Shelterwood CEO.

At Shelterwood, we believe any conversation and any activity is an opportunity for growth. Life at Shelterwood is both exciting and nurturing, and teens see what it looks like to follow Jesus. Your teen's attention is captured through new relationships, recreation, service projects and adventure. It’s how students gain a new vision for their lives. Much of the work done in the hearts and lives of teens happens in the normal course of the day with our life-on-life discipleship, in which young adult mentors model love for others and love for Jesus. Shelterwood life provides space for a new beginning — for your teen and for your family.
