Therapeutic Boarding School Activities

The property features a well equipped gym with weight machines, soccer field, baseball diamond, basketball court, pool, game room, fishing ponds, and professional sport fishing boats to take frequent fishing trips. We have horses on the property that are often ridden, and at times taken on camping trips. We take pride in forming strong relationships with each boy in our care and much of the life changing experiences take place while involved in these outdoor activities.

Each student at our ranch has the opportunity to spend time in the mountain wilderness of North Carolina. In the mountains each boy will experience camping, whitewater rafting, hiking the Appalachian Trail and other wilderness adventures. This experience is to show students that life can be exciting and adventurous without the negative influence that was a part of their life in the past.

  • Spiritually:  The student’s symptoms are indicative of deeper problems and conflicts; we understand that a new life in Christ will give them the power and ability to overcome these problems and live a more productive life.
  • Emotionally: The healing of the past is necessary. Bible studies enhance mental growth and serve as a foundation for creating new lives.
  • Physically: We care for the physical needs of the students. 
  • Socially: Students learn to work through relationship problems with their peers and with their families at home. They will learn to apply the character qualities they learn in the classroom to their everyday lives.
  • Educationally: We have developed a curriculum specifically designed to teach students about God and help them develop the skills required for them to become successful Christians.
