Master’s Ranch – West is a structured, Christian residential program for teenage boys age 9-17, located on the Snake River in Eastern Washington. Our relationally oriented program is specifically designed to meet the needs of our students and their families struggling with difficult challenges and life circumstance.
MRCA uses a military style of organization and discipline, in that the boys navigate a rank structure through which they gradually earn elevated levels of trust, responsibility, authority, and privilege. Breaking the rules leads to losing privileges. Boys are MRCA built up in their confidence and thoughtfulness, allowing them to successfully return to home life, college, vocational training, the military, or employment. We strongly push them toward a vocation or to move toward more training once they leave MRCA, which gives them the reason to keep a straight head and their eye on the target for their future, so they don’t fall back into old ways of thinking and acting.
MRCA has been helping troubled teens to overcome their struggles and become healthy and happy young adults. The services offered at Master’s Ranch focus on the development and support of education, vocational and spiritual growth. The doors opened up with just 6 program participants and began to slowly grow in participants.
The campus is on 400 acres surrounded by Broetje Orchards. Master’s Ranch – West is a structured, positive learning environment that offers the benefits of talented staff dedicated to helping young men gain the tools needed for success. The program integrates educational, spiritual, and personal growth curricula with vocational skill building activities, athletics, and community service learning projects. This integration, combined with a relationship-focused approach, provides full student engagement and results in demonstrated success. Staff and volunteers works with each student, creating an individualized development plan that outlines objectives and goals for the student’s success.
We offer an academic program complete with advanced and college prep coursework. Our coursework is designed for those students that have fallen short of the standard expectation. In addition, our campus is equipped with many vocational opportunities for our students to engage in. These programs include woodworking, horsemanship, culinary arts, welding and facilities management. Although these programs may not be available to our students year-round, the students will have the opportunities to engage in the programs through our unique evening programming opportunities. This comprehensive program that includes the vocational exposure and lessons provides a life-changing opportunity to discover and create a more fulfilling lifestyle for our students.
