Christian Boarding School and Boys Group Home with Therapy, Character-Building Activities, Trades Training and an Education
Helping Rebellious and Difficult Boys Get on a Better Track in Life
Master’s Ranch Christian Academy is a place of daily adventure, from morning to night. It’s built for energetic boys, to learn through physical activity and mentoring how to become an authentic, trustworthy man. Each boy is given experiences to equip them with confidence to take on anything in life. They learn responsibility and how to work, but they also learn to how to play, through physical outdoor activities that have meaning and purpose. The active environment at Master’s Ranch helps boys develop a renewed excitement and care for life and for their future. They learn to respect God and that honoring Him and His principles is manly too. Few other programs offer such broad vocational, spiritual and wilderness experiences for boys, along with a first-class education.
At Master’s Ranch Christian Academy, boys and their families find new help, healing and reconciliation when they had almost lost hope. The sprawling ranch campus in Southeastern Missouri offers a family environment in an agricultural setting with a balance of discipline and training in an unmistakable atmosphere of mentoring, love and acceptance. Each boy is given the tools needed to regain confidence, self respect and spiritual footing necessary to embrace his family and his future.
A Home and School for Troubled Teenage Boys, Offering a Listening Ear and a Voice of Truth
If your son has been getting into trouble, he needs someone trustworthy who will listen to him without judgment. Our boys home offers counseling throughout the week, both one-on-one and also in a group setting. In addition, our staff engage the boys as a friend they can talk to, making therapy unthreatening and ongoing in the boy’s own natural environment while they work or play. Throughout their stay, we maintain a watchful eye, but we do so while surrounding them in our home-like setting with loving care, inspiring them toward a more productive and rewarding future.
Our Christian boarding school and boys home is unique in that it provides extensive “hands on” vocational experience for the boys as they also work on the ranch. In addition to working with the ranch animals, tools and equipment, they learn real-life, potentially high wage trades and receive responsibility and character-building that is needed for a successful future. Boys have important daily tasks, through which they earn a sense of pride. They learn and experience a variety of trades, building new confidence, respect for themselves and others, and a strong work ethic.
