The most difficult day of my life was leaving my daughter at CGA. I own and operate facilities similar to CGA except for young adults, not adolescents. However, the same way that my clients can not "hear" their parents, my daughter could not "hear" me. From working in the industry, I am always critical of those who do this for a living and not as their calling. CGA is the most loving and enveloping program for these young girls that I have ever found. To give them five stars would be an injustice, they deserve the moon AND the stars! My will be graduating the program in two weeks. while I have missed her greatly, I have seen and heard an almost unbelievable transformation. My daughter now has a relationship with our Lord and Father, a solid faith based foundation that she can build on the rest of her life. Bob & Carla are the "real deal". They love and care for these girls as their own. I have recommended CGA to EVERY single parent who has called me looking for a place for their adolescent daughter and I will continue to do so for as long as I am in the same industry. To Ivy, Sophia's counselor - only the Lord could have placed you in our lives, and we want you to know that you are and always will be considered family. If you are seeking the perfect place - you have found it at CGA!

Our family will be forever grateful for the support that was offered while our daughter attended CGA. Although we were initially apprehensive, it was evident as the months unfolded that our daughter was in a safe, nurturing and faith filled environment. The students are kept engaged with a sound academic program, commitment to their church, community outreach projects, conferences and field trips. Academically, our daughter made significant gains while at CGA. We noted an improvement in her reading and writing ability and also her understanding of mathematical concepts. She has met with significant success in these areas since returning home. The caring and committed staff make every effort to guide the students through their life controlling struggles. Our daughter's discerning counselor was a true God send! Above all, there is a higher purpose to this program. ALL staff encourage the students to have a personal relationship with God allowing them to discover the person that He intended them to be and recognize what they are able to accomplish through Him.

It has been over 2 years since I dropped my belligerant daughter off at Columbus Girl's Academy. She would not give me a hug goodby and was intent on going through the motions to just 'get through'. But God!!She graduated almost a year ago and has been home since then and is currently in her senior year of high school planning for her college entrance next Fall. The biggest victory/celebration, however, can be related in what occurred last night and has been an ongoing pattern -- Sitting at my home desk, my daughter came up to tell me good night and with a hug and I love you, Dad! Thank you God and staff at CGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finding the Columbus Girls Academy and making the decision by prayer we soon realized that the Lord led us here. It was thru Grace and the great staff in place that our daughters transformation began and soon her new beginnings and shed her old ways. I will never forget the look on my wifes face after returning from a fact finding trip to the school. It is the right place for our daughter and we had visited several, but none were like this place nor the staff.

Columbus Girls Academy was the perfect solution for our daughter. We wanted a program where she could get the "help" she needed and at the same time continue to be a teenager. Not a wilderness camp or boot camp. CGA provides an excellent staff and a beautiful facility where our daughter was loved and safe. Best decision we could have made.

Columbus Girls Academy helped our daughter through a crisis point in her life. The admissions staff worked quickly to identify his/her need and get through the enrollment process, so she got the help she needed right away. Columbus Girls Academy knows teenagers. They are equipped to give professional, effective care. They loved our daughter like their own. I don't know what we would have done without them.

I can't believe it's been 10 years since I graduated from Columbus Girls Academy. I'm married to a wonderful man who loves the Lord, and we have two small children of our own. The lessons I learned at Columbus Girls Academy help me every day in my relationships, in my marriage and with friends and parents and even in-laws. I wouldn't be where I am today without all of you.

I have just returned home from placing my daughter in the care of Columbus Girls Academy. My heart is full, but I am at peace. She is in good hands, and Columbus Girls Academy is the best care possible for her. This is the beginning of a brand new chapter in our lives.

I am graduate from Columbus Girls Academy. I went in in April of 2012, a seemingly lost and hopeless teenager. CGA helped me realize not only what I was needing help with, but that God could and would gladly help me. I would have not had a relationship with the Lord, if it were not for CGA.

It was so hard to send my daughter away, but I knew it was the best thing to do. Columbus Girls Academy held my hand through the whole thing. They always told me what was going on. They even gave me other parents to talk to who had been through it before. And most of all, I knew they were loving my daughter and taking excellent care of her.
