Seneca Ranch Boarding School and Second Chance Youth Ranch

Introduction and Location

Seneca Ranch Second Chance Youth Ranch, is a boarding school and Christian camp that works with troubled adolescents in a kind, humane and non-evasive manner. Seneca Ranch provides a safe and secure environment for adolescents seeking to change their lives and an island of hope for the families seeking to help their children. Seneca is a great choice for any teen who may be struggling in their home, school or community. Although distinct on its own merit, its program process is similar in some ways to boot camps, wilderness programs, military schools or other specialty youth boarding schools. Seneca Ranch is a Christian Based Boarding School, not a state of South Carolina group home or residential treatment center.

As a Boarding School in beautiful South Carolina, we shut down each year from December 20th to January 30th to do our mission trips to Costa Rica or for students to go home for the holidays

All counseling and formal therapy is provided by experienced outside licensed counselors and centers.* Seneca Ranch is located in the Carolina's beautiful Upstate region, near Andersen, SC and provides a safe environment away from inappropriate friends or influences.
Student body; What kind of Student Needs Our Services

Working Ranch At Our Christian Boarding School Camp Program

Seneca Ranch is a working 500 acre horse and cattle ranch, providing boarding school students a rare opportunity to actually work daily on the ranch. It operates a 200 head beef cattle and P.R.E (Pura Raza Española-Andalusian) Spanish thoroughbred horse farm. Seneca Ranch provides home schooling, a point merit system, and a comprehensive emotional growth process. The process includes therapy through sub-contracted independent licensed counselors to facilitate change for the students. Many parents find that our down home family ranch atmosphere works better for their children than former residential treatment centers, boot camps, wilderness therapy programs, or military schools where they have been enrolled. The youth served by Seneca Ranch have come to us with a variety of self-limiting conditions such as Asperger’s Syndrome, ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder), Oppositional Defiance Disorder, or prior addictive behavior leading to substance abuse and inappropriate relationships involving sexual promiscuity. We teach traditional Judeo-Christian values of honesty, integrity and hard work that begin to shape new horizons in the hearts and minds of the students in our care. We invite you to come learn with us and your child the virtues of the past as we work with you to prepare your child for their future in an environment of trust and love that is common in South Carolina.  

* Therapists who work with our students are independent licensed counselors who provide subcontracted services to our students participating in our boarding school process.  As a result
every student at Seneca Ranch has a advocate and voice separate and Independent from Seneca Ranch.
