FROM CRISIS TO NEW CREATION | OUR STORY
Since 1988 Still Creek has been rescuing children out of crisis through Christian education. We are a private academy whose heartbeat is to rescue boys and girls from crisis-environments, such as; sex-trade, abuse, neglect, and abandonment. We place our children in a loving, safe, Christ-centered home and restore their lives through our accredited boarding school, family-style home environment, Bible-based counseling, TAPPS athletics, fine arts, and Equestrian & Agricultural Program. In an effort to extend long-term care and healing to our children we take no government funding–making Still Creek Ranch one of the only debt-free boarding schools for ‘at-risk’ minors currently existing in the United States. Our on-site private academy is the heartbeat and priority of our program; setting our residents up for future success through a Christian education.
Located on a 300-acre working ranch in Central Texas, Still Creek Ranch exists to change the way the world views child rescue, and to set the new standard of care and restoration for minors who are in crisis.
Instead of extending pity toward our children for their devastating past, we create an environment for them to see their wounds as power–establishing a model of healing from the inside, out. Instead of focusing on the behavior of the child, we challenge the child to peel back the layers of hurt inside their heart; opening up the opportunity to break the chains of their past and usher in authentic healing and restoration for their future.
Through our top-notch SACS accredited (k-12) Christian Academy, we offer our children opportunities to thrive and succeed in the following areas: Advanced Equestrian Program, TAPPS Athletics, Agricultural Science, Fine Arts, and Biblical Teaching. Also, by creating a family-style home environment built on love, honesty, and structure, our children are equipped to change their story of crisis into a new creation.
Still Creek Ranch, along with our accredited boarding school, are rooted in 5 C’s : Christian Worldview, Care & Concern for Others, Courage, Critical Thinking, and Civility.
RESCUING THE HOMELESS, ABUSED, TRADED, & FORGOTTEN.
Restore Her is an aftercare program for minor girls who are ‘at risk’ for sex trafficking and those who have been rescued from sex trafficking. Restore Her also rescues girls who have been exposed to commercial or private sexual eploitation. Texas leads the nation as a hub for human trafficking, and Restore Her is committed to lead the nation in rescuing these victims. We offer longterm hope and healing to our girls through a safe, God-centered environment, the opportunity to graduate through our accredited boarding school, as well as guidance & healing through specialized counseling, athletics, arts, and our equestrian riding program.
Matthew’s House is a program for students who have graduated from Still Creek Ranch. It is independent, transitional living that equips our students for life off the ranch. Through mentorship and teaching, these young adults learn essential life skills including money management, organization, and professionalism while working a job or attending a higher education institution.
Still Creek Christian Academy is a fully accredited boarding school offering K-12 education to students residing in the surrounding community, as well as students who reside at the ranch. Students who attend our school are given Gospel – centered teachings that prepare them to pursue higher education. In addition to academic excellence, our program offers extensive extra-curricular activities. Our students compete in 1A-TAPPS athletics with other schools in the area. We also have one of the largest Equestrian & Agricultural Programs in the state, where students learn both English and Western riding disciplines. Our school is the heartbeat and priority of our program, setting all of our students up for future success.
The 300 acres of Still Creek Ranch is divided between 2 campuses. Our main campus is where you will find our private academy, equestrian center, administrative offices, staff housing, and two boys homes. Our second campus is a gated, secure, and undisclosed location where our girls currently share two homes, with construction almost complete on a third.
Our homes are built with a family-friendly atmosphere in mind. Our heart’s desire is for our Still Creek children to experience a true family; including all of the joys and challenges that come along with that family. Our homes are made up of 8-10 children loved and cared for by on-site cottage coordinators (often times having children of their own), living in private family-quarters within the home. Still Creek is very strategic and intentional with the children we rescue and care for. We do not take “troubled” children, but rescue children out of true crisis situations. These crisis-scenarios include, but are not limited to: homelessness, abandonment by legal guardians, severe abuse, severe neglect, and victims of sex-trade/trafficking. Still Creek rescues both boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 17. We do not accept applications for children over 17 years of age.We offer a college scholarship and apartment-style living to our Still Creek graduates who choose to stay in the Bryan/College Station area for their college studies.
