Wings of Faith Girls Academy
Gender: all female
Wings of Faith Academy (located near Stockton, Missouri) is a low cost conservative Christian residential program for troubled girls. It has two main objectives for each teenage girl. First, to help each young lady learn to honor God and honor her parents, becoming a woman of integrity and an asset to her community. Second, to prepare girls for their chosen vocation through an accredited college-prep academic program.
Wings of Faith nurtures character values such as respect, self-discipline, and leadership. We help girls develop their abilities in many areas, including academic, social, athletic, musical, and extracurricular. We instruct girls on caring for a family and a home. We desire to see each girl develop a personal relationship with God as well as to restore her relationship with her parents. The staff at Wings of Faith works closely with young ladies to help them make the right choices, not just the “easy” choices, as they seek to rebuild what has been broken in their lives.
The academic program at Wings of Faith academy serves girls at all levels of academic ability to help them earn a high school diploma. For those who desire it, we offer an accelerated program that leads to college-level coursework. For those with more modest ability, our flexible curriculum allows for self-paced study to maximize understanding and mastery of concepts.
Wings of Faith students enjoy a wide variety of activities and events throughout the year, helping them simply enjoy life once again. Through our caring and structured program, girls become sweet young ladies prepared for healthy futures.
If your teen girl is rebelling, deceitful, struggling with authority, running away, coming home late, sexually promiscuous, experimenting with alcohol or drugs, failing school, or has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Hyperactivity Deficit Disorder, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, or depression, our Christian boarding school can help. Typical Christian boarding schools tend to expel misbehaving girls, but we welcome them and work with them to change their behaviors. Our boarding school offers a well-balanced therapeutic program to help each girl get back on track spiritually, behaviorally and academically.
BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION: It is important for teens to learn coping skills, character, self discipline, personal accountability and good habits. Our therapeutic residential school offers a structured environment and counseling where at risk teen girls get the help they need. We provide an environment that helps teens see their issues and decide to make positive changes in their lives. Our methods have been turning teen girls around for over 20 years. Our school is a member of the Missouri Association of Christian Child Care Agencies (MACCCA)
CATCH-UP ACADEMICS: Yes, your teen can get caught up and excel in her academic life at Wings of Faith. We also have college preparatory studies. WOF is accredited through Accreditation International, a recognized member in good standing with National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA), the Council on Occupational Education (COE), and the International Council for Education. Girls have the opportunity to catch up on credits they have missed or failed. The curriculum is individualized to the needs of each student
SPIRITUAL EMPHASIS: All girls in our therapeutic Christian boarding school learn biblical principles that deal with many different teen issues. We invite inspirational speakers to visit our boarding school. Many of these are national speakers who have been helping teens for many years. Many of our residents find true healing from a change in heart resulting from a new-found or first-time relationship with Jesus Christ.

- “I walked in as nothing but a rebellious teenager, and now I’m leaving as a young lady with a productive plan for my life. I was born and raised in Oakland, California, but I am going to attend Pensacola Christian College at Pensacola, Florida and am going to major in nursing. Wow, who would’ve thought I’d go to college all the way across the country! The Lord has something big and great for me just waiting out there. I just know it! But really, I could NOT have made it this far without you. I just want to thank and praise the LORD for saving me and my soul! ‘In my distress I cried unto the Lord, and He heard me.’ Psalm 120:1″
