Master's Ranch Christian Academy is a Christian boarding school that serves at-risk children from around the region with life-changing structure, support, and discipline.
For more than three decades, Pastor David Bosley and Master's Ranch have worked to help at-risk adolescents and their families find a path to a better future by providing them with the support they need, camaraderie, and faith-based guidance.
Counseling and Therapeutic Healing for 20 years
After working with at-risk children for over two decades, the now-retired founder David Bosley and Master's Ranch Christian Academy have helped people who are self-destructive or have been diagnosed with ADHD, ADD or RAD find the hope and confidence they need to take an alternative path in life.
Youth therapy at Master's Ranch is done in an informal, ranch-style atmosphere, with a Christian-based approach that fosters sharing and makes positive change more achievable.
Creating Confidence by Emphasizing the Value of Work
Master's Ranch Christian Academy helps at-risk children build their self-esteem and self-confidence by training them to care for dogs, pigs, and calves on a functioning farm. Working with animals in a therapeutic capacity can help with a variety of issues, including stress reduction and the development of healthy emotional attachments.
In addition, Master's Ranch offers a strong vocational training program emphasizing the acquisition of practical workplace skills. Boys in the Master's Ranch program learn a variety of trade skills, such as carpentry, electrical work, plumbing, and even cooking, which gives them a sense of accomplishment and self-worth that will serve them for the rest of their life.
Consistency in the Face of Obstacles
Structure and discipline at Master's Ranch Christian Academy are based on military-style organization and discipline that emphasizes the concepts of trust, privilege, responsibility, and respect for authority.
