Residential Program

Scholars enrolled in our Residential Program attend outstanding private middle and high schools whose missions reflect the same holistic values that BHGH was founded upon. Residential scholars live in one of three homes on our campus in Garfield Heights. The homes are staffed by a qualified and highly trained group of dedicated Residential Counselors who have answered the vocational call to live-in community with these young people.
