Gateway Freedom Ranch is an accredited Christian boarding school focusing on emotional and behavioral health for younger girls age 9-13 who are struggling with anger, depression, defiance, or relationships. Girls learn personal discipline and an “others-centered” approach to life that help them develop healthier relationships, strong Christian values and essential life-skills.

Our most recent site visit was in 2011, we were impressed by the beautiful setting of the campus and homelike atmosphere surrounded by natural beauty. The homelike setting is fantastic for younger girls who may not fit well in larger or more clinical settings. Gateway is one of the few programs that can address the issues younger girls may be struggling with. In our discussions with the director, Lisa Marek, we have found that she has a big heart, loves God, and does right.
