Timothy Hill Academy

Timothy Hill Academy
Timothy Hill Academy is a non-profit, therapeutic boarding school designed to help troubled boys between the ages of 13-17. Each campus thrives in an equestrian, adventure-based environment with the goal of transforming lives through love. Trained professional staff teach teens how to become productive citizens through career counseling, caseworker and caretaker support, and by creating a plan for transitioning back into their community. Timothy Hill Academy features two residential campuses, in New York and Tennessee. Each campus provides a safe place for boys to work through and resolve the issues that have thrown their lives out of balance. The Tennessee campus has six homes and two horse farms spread across 86 acres. The caring, transformational program is a blend of: Academics, Counseling, Vocational training, Mentoring, Spiritual guidance, and Equine therapy

The focus is to help young teens to become upstanding citizens who learn the value of a good, hard day’s work, and to develop a strong character, so that they can one day be able to provide for themselves and their families.

therapeutic schoolsTimothy Hill Academy uses Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), which is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents impacted by trauma, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), ODD (Oppositional Defiance Disorder), RAD (Reactive Attachment Disorder), PTSD, abandonment issues, learning disabilities, oppositional defiant disorders, autism, depression, or anxiety.

therapeutic schoolsStudents experience numerous recreational activities. Adventures include horseback riding, hiking, swimming, water sports, skiing, sledding and service projects. In the New York program, they also attend sporting events on Long Island, NYC and NJ, 5K races, and Spartan Races.

Timothy Hill Academy adapts their academic schedule to the needs of the individual student. The goal of academics is to see the boys graduate from high-school, but also to obtain a driving permit, then a driver’s license, and find gainful employment and develop independent living skills.

Timothy Hill also offers a workforce development program on each campus (teaching them to be on time, work hard, and attain gainful employment), with proximity and relationship with BOCES, daily devotional, and church attendance.

therapeutic schoolsVocational education and personal mentoring are the cornerstone of Timothy Hill Academy, coupled with off-site vocational placement with business partners. At the Timothy Hill New York and Tennessee campuses, boys 13-17 years old gain confidence, build character, and develop life skills through on-site work projects. Boys also learn to use many different hand and power tools. As they progress, they are allowed, with supervision, to apply for and obtain off-site work.

therapeutic schoolsThe wide variety of on-site trades include Carpentry, Woodworking, Electrical Work, Plumbing, Computer Basics, Culinary Arts, Animal Husbandry, Agriculture, Auto Mechanics, Barista training, and much more.

The Timothy Hill vocation staff aids teen boys in learning accountability, transportation, and company compliance, and each boy’s hard-earned paychecks go into a savings account. The program also keeps teen boys moving toward independent living as young adults.
