Eagle Ranch School Mission Statement
Through the healing presence of Christ, Eagle Ranch School offers students the opportunity to fulfill their academic promise. Through encouragement, meaningful relationships and quality instruction, students are empowered to make positive choices and experience present and future success.
Encouragement, Relationships, Choices, Success
Eagle Ranch School (ERS) is a safe and supportive environment that provides opportunities for success through challenging and individualized instruction. Students experience an atmosphere of hope, respect, encouragement, and belonging that allows them to risk and grow as they take responsibility for their academic achievement and future success. ERS staff are devoted to Christ and operate from a biblical framework, so that through Christ, students can be equipped to fulfill God’s promise for their lives.
Preparing Students for Success
Fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) in grades 3rd – 11th, Eagle Ranch School helps children improve their academic performance in an encouraging, safe learning environment. We meet children at their point of academic need: challenging them ready and helping them catch up when necessary. This is possible thanks to our exceptionally low teacher-to-student ratio – one teacher and one para-professional for every 12 children.
Our on-campus school integrates seamlessly with the rest of our program, helping to develop key life skills necessary for boys and girls to be successful:
- Strong work ethic
- Organizational skills
- Interpersonal communication skills
Eagle Ranch School serves children in grades 3-11.
Our School’s Focus
Eagle Ranch School’s primary purpose is to educate children in an environment that allows Jesus Christ to help them “…put off their old selves…and be made new in the attitude of their minds.” Ephesians 4:22-23. The school works in conjunction with houseparents, counselors, and program assistants to facilitate the ultimate goal of family reunification.
Additionally, Eagle Ranch School is focused on preparing students for their future. Our goal is for students to find success in the classroom academically and behaviorally. Therefore, we incorporate best practices recognized by leaders in education as the most effective methods for helping children learn.
In addition to strengthening academic deficits, the school provides opportunities for students to develop the skills that will facilitate future success. Our small, structured, supportive and safe school environment gives students a chance for success that they might not have had in a larger school setting.
The underlying premise of all of our school activities is to facilitate spiritual growth while helping students become internally motivated to succeed, learn to work with others, and build self-confidence. Eagle Ranch School hopes to furnish students with the academic skills necessary to succeed in school upon reunification with their family.
