Ranch Overview - 80 Acres located in the Boise Valley
We are blessed to have 80 beautiful acres to utilize for the Lords work as we strive to provide a loving, caring and structured home life for children in need. Luke 18:16 tells us; "But Jesus called the children to Him and said,'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these." Our desire is to be the hands & feet of Jesus showing unconditional love to kids who need a stable family life during this stage of their life. We count it an HONOR to be such a place for kids!
School: Ekklesia Christian School
Ekklesia Christian School is our private, on-site school that is accredited with the AdvancED network. It exists to provide high quality, Christian education to the students living at the Ranch. We strive for high performance in Academics, Behavior, and Christian Character. The children are encouraged in and made aware of their true potential and abilities. Most importantly, we strive to introduce our students to the love and freedom Christ offers them.
We use the ACE - Accelerated Christian Education and School of Tomorrow as our base curriculum. ACE has a strong focus on character and Bible training while providing rigorous standards of education.
The school also offers language classes through Rosetta Stone, another individualized learning program often used by Fortune 500 companies for their employees. We have French, Spanish, Russian, Mandarin Chinese, and Japanese available.
Many students coming to the Ranch are 1-3 years behind in school. We diagnose all students upon placement to determine their true academic level and assess and fill in any learning gaps that may exist. Our individualized curriculum allows us to do this, and a student can complete 1-1/2 to 2 years of work in 1 school year, eventually catching them up to their chronological grade level while ensuring mastery before moving forward.
Life skills and personal interest courses are also offered at the school. Past courses have included: Culinary Class, Auto Shop, Woodworking, Equestrian care and Horsemanship that are taught by area volunteers and knowledgeable staff members.
The school goes on various field trips throughout the year. These have included the Craters of the Moon State Park, National Birds of Prey, McCall Ice Carnival, Micron, Gabby Farms animal park, and the War Hawk Air Museum.
We are involved with the CSAA - Christian Schools Athletics Association. This collection of Christian Schools competes in Flag Football, Volleyball, and Basketball.
