Our students enjoy numerous activities that are specially designed for growth. These include community service, daily chores, educational classes, and guest speakers. Most of these activities are chosen specifically for their ability to teach independence, life skills, teamwork, leadership, and problem solving. Many of these activities are also designed to achieve healthy objectives.
Through various exercises, students will learn to work together by planning and executing projects, games, initiatives and activities. Evenings are filled with activities and events designed to help students develop relationships and exercise their skills and emotional growth. Your daughter’s schedule will be made up of in-house schooling, personal and house chores, physical fitness activities, service and work projects, educational field trips, and recreational activities.
When a student comes to Boise Girls Academy, we understand that she may be lacking in certain life skills. Our caring staff provides adequate training and assistance which allows our students to flourish and feel confident in these basic life skills.
Service is an integral part of learning at Boise Girls Academy. Each week, students work together in groups on ongoing projects. Some of these projects include on-campus beautification, fund-raisers, and helping out at a local community organization or mercy ministry.
Recreation and Sports
The recreation program at Boise Girls Academy consists of both on- and off-campus activities. We provide an athletic outlet to our students, through which they can learn, practice and enhance athletic skills. We have a running track and volleyball court on our campus, as well as aerobics classes taught by instructors. A variety of sports are played casually to emphasize teamwork and fun. Building relationships through shared activities also serves as a foundation of support, honesty and trust for new students.
Our campus is within easy driving distance of numerous attractions and parks. We believe having fun doing healthy activities is an important part of healing, and we are perfectly situated for almost all types of recreation.
Our students are exposed to the arts, classical literature, various types of music, and etiquette. Students also take responsibility for planning a fun activity for their student-peers. Accessing their creative energies, our residents make blankets, holiday crafts, paint, scrapbook, learn to knit and crochet, and make beaded handicrafts.
At Boise Girls Academy, we believe it is important to give our students an opportunity to digest their day and re-evaluate it, contemplate their future, and dream of life’s possibilities. Even though our schedule is full, we take time every day for quiet reflection.
