Grace Boys Ranch is a residential school that helps boys 6 to 16 years old with behavior problems.
Our staff and teachers are skilled in working with boys with behavioral problems. We have a small number of students, so each boy receives very individualized attention. Besides the behavioral aspects of the program, we also concentrate on the spiritual well-being of each student. Good spiritual character builds good moral character. The physical education of each student is also emphasized. Good diet, exercise, and ranch chores are assigned and essential to the program’s success. The classical education of each student is a high priority at Grace Boys Ranch. Our school program is tailor-made to accommodate your son’s behavioral problems.
Our success at Grace Boys Ranch has been changing attitudes and behaviors from negative to positive. We do this through a structured and disciplined environment, natural and logical consequences, and your son’s accepting increased responsibility for his actions. Our boys develop personal and group projects, which they are responsible in completing in a timely manner. As an individual, completion of a project raises self confidence. As a team member, the group finishes projects together and your son learns the value of working together with others.
Part of our academic program is our regularly scheduled field trips. These trips may include the St. Louis Zoo, Science Center, Amish Country, parks, bike rides, Lincoln Historical sites, and more.
