The Boarding School Program is a nine month unique academic program centered around an exciting 'pre-veterinarian' learning experience. Students live in a beautiful ranch home setting at school which is located at the Tennessee Guest Ranch in the gorgeous Sequatchie Valley, just 45 minutes from Chattanooga, TN.  Depending on the age of the child and how far away they live, students either return home each weekend, twice a month, once a month, or every six weeks, pending school schedules, educational travel, etc.  Each Boarding School Student receives their 'very own' Equestrian Team Horse for the year.  In addition to the rigorous academic program and enrichment activities, students have the daily responsibility of their horse. This school is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students. 



Boarding School Students also participate in International and U.S. travel.  The travel is focused on both education and mission work.  Lord willling, students travel to Central America annually for extended mission work with the Honduras Horsemanship Mission Program (click on the icon on the menu bar for photos & more detail).  

Students are surrounded by animals at their school residence which is located on the beautiful ranch property at the Tennessee Guest Ranch, just outside Chattanooga, TN.  Students live in a conservative Christian 'family atmosphere' in a beautiful majestic setting surrounded by mountains, horses, dairy cows, beef cattle and a variety of other animals. Only a small number of students are accepted into the boarding school program each year to ensure that each child receives the individualized attention needed to provide a Christian family atmosphere.


Boarding Students participate in an aggressive academic curriculum that incorporates all of the core subjects of Math, English, History and Science with other programs such as public speaking, political debate, Bible study, foreign language and music.  Students attend school daily at the ranch in a small, state of the art classroom, complete with science lab and pre-veterinarian lab facilities on site at the Tennessee Guest Ranch. Students are equipped with their own school laptop, an aggressive academic program tailored to the needs of each child, and lots of animals to help keep their studies hands on!  Students also take their studies 'outside' their modern classroom setting by packing their saddle bags with lunch and plenty of academic assignments for 'school on the trail' day (without laptops of course)! Students also participate in a dynamic Equestrian Program at school which includes riding lessons in English and Western including; pleasure riding, western roping lessons, formal hunter/jumper lessons, dressage lessons, mounted sermon presentations, and drama productions using horses.
