Welcome to Runnymede Boarding School

We are a Boys Boarding School located near Walnut Grove, Missouri. As 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.

  • He shows tremendous improvement in respect, politeness, and willingness to help others or start things himself, while having come a long way in his reading skills. For the first time, he is proud of who he is and of what he does, which he admits is because of what he has learned at Runnymede. We received praise from other people because of his behavior and actions. We can tell he is more mature now and we look forward to seeing the impact of all that in his future. Thank you and the rest of the staff for your role in it! Keep up the good work!
  • Our son surprised both of us with his excellent behavior and good manners while he was home on break. We were a little concerned about how he might be when it came time to return to Runnymede but he only mentioned twice that he would prefer to stay home and very willingly and cooperatively packed his things and returned. He excepted not playing any video games or having cell phone use and limited TV time without any issues. We spent a most enjoyable time with our son.
  • I also wanted to let you that we were more than pleased with you, Runnymede, and the environment you have created there. And especially with the results we see in our boy. We more than appreciate your help, and feel we can build on what you have provided to him. He is such a good child and is in a very good place now with his attitude and understanding of the love of Christ. Thanks again for all you have done.

  • Words will never be enough to show you the gratitude I have. Your program is truly amazing. When I called last night my son answered the phone laughing hysterically about something. It warms my heart to know he is happy and learning great skills when I am so far away and missing him.
  • Runnymede was the best experience I've ever had and probably will have.

  • Runnymede got my life, and my family's life back on track. Going to Runnymede was difficult, challenging, and inspirational to me, I'd have to say it was the best thing to happen to me so far.
