The Haven Academy for Young Ladies opened it’s doors as a ministry of Shenandoah Baptist Church in 1997. It is a Bible based ministry focused on helping young ladies who are struggling with spiritual, family, and social issues. Our goal is to show them that true joy is found in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and learning to live for Him in your daily life.

This is accomplished by placing an emphasis on Bible teaching in the home, classroom, and church. Through God’s Word we learn that our struggles of life begin with struggles of the heart. Our aim is to see Christ transform young people first in their heart. This change will then show through in their words and actions.

While working toward that goal, we provide a safe “Haven” away from the worldly influences that have led to many of their bad decisions. The ladies are able to focus on their school studies, enjoy their social life, and experience a family atmosphere in a Christ exalting environment. We provide great academics, athletic opportunities, a wonderful church environment, and a loving home. Through these means, we strive to see spiritual, family, and social growth in their lives.
