Our History

Wheatfield Academy is part of Lasting Change, Inc, headquartered in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Lasting Change has been providing mental health counseling services for both Christian and secular communities within Indiana, around the U.S., and internationally for over 50 years. Lasting Change Inc.’s experience includes operating various residential treatment centers for youth within the DCS and juvenile justice system in Indiana for many years. The first campus was Pierceton Woods Academy which was established in 2008. Four years later in 2012, Caribbean Mountain Academy located in the Dominican Republic was launched to provide therapeutic boarding school services for privately funded families in need of similar mental health intervention and counseling. Our desire to launch Wheatfield Academy grew as more and more families expressed a need for help, yet many were afraid of placing their teens in a program outside of the United States. Because of this need, Lasting Change Inc. launched Wheatfield Academy in 2022 to continue to serve youth and families and to help them experience restoration, hope, and healing.
