  • Back to Basics

    Runnymede school residents learn how to milk cows, feed calves, raise chickens and turkeys, collect eggs, feed pigs and goats, ride horses, grow fruit and vegetables and they'll love every minute of it.

Welcome to Runnymede Boarding School

We are a Boys Boarding School located near Walnut Grove, Missouri. As a Christian boarding school for boys aged 9-16 we focus on personalized counseling, discipling, and mentoring while living on a working farm. Our goal is to provide the structure and discipline that will help your son “put off” bad habits and behaviors, while they “put on” new productive, Godly behaviors.

Our unique environment provides a setting where every experience and practice guide in changing bad habits and, with God’s help, renewing their minds. We are dedicated to providing a safe, Christian, and family atmosphere that will encourage and train struggling boys to be the Godly young men that parents, churches and communities can be proud of. Our goal is to provide early intervention and prevention to help struggling boys reach their full potential and to become well-rounded Christian young men.
