Sharpening the character of young men. Shaping the future of family.

(A Therapeutic Boarding School in the scenic Ozarks of Southern Missouri)

Whetstone Boys Ranch is a Therapeutic Boarding School that serves struggling boys and their families with intensive family therapy, academic support and outdoor programming.  We believe in building up young men to become true servant-leaders in their families and communities.

Since 2011, Whetstone has been dedicated to the reconciliation of boys (ages 11-15) and their families.  Struggles such as addiction, anger, depression, low self esteem and trauma are treated with a loving and systems-based approach.  We take pride in how our program is set apart with its comprehensive approach to treatment and restoration.  During their year-long stay, residents will experience a loving home-like environment, rewarding studies, invigorating ranch work, and true character-building adventure.  You are invited to partner with us in guiding young men back to the path that God has laid out for them.

We are so excited about the ways God is working at Whetstone Boys Ranch and would love to share more about our vision and mission!
