Photo of Christian Boarding School for Boys in MissouriRunnymede School's curriculum is what we call a "hybrid" curriculum. Because many of our students enroll at various times throughout the school year we tailor or design coursework for each student .

We offer basic core classes such as math, history, english and science. In addition, we offer courses that are unique to Runnymede School and reinforce our 3 fold mission. These classes include but are not limited to physical education, music, church history, latin, agriculture, wood shop, horticulture, biblical economics, small business basics, basic auto, bible.

Each student will receive a personal curriculum upon enrollment. Most coursework is designed in a tutorial fashion and students are encouraged to work at a faster pace than a typical school. Traditional teacher led courses are also offered.

Agrarian Lifestyle:
Your son will milk cows, feed calves, raise chickens and turkeys, collect eggs, feed pigs and goats, ride horses, grow fruit and vegetables and love every minute of it. All the meat (chicken, beef, pork and turkey) is raised and consumed at Runnymede.Your son will tend his own garden plot and learn all about organic farming.

Runnymede School is located on 31 acres about 30 minutes from Springfield and offers a disciplined, structured and purposeful lifestyle that strives to reform destructive behavior while teaching Godly masculinity. Runnymede focuses on daily biblical counseling and lots of hard work in basic life skills.

Christian in Name and Practice:

Your son will be taught about repentance and forgiveness, and that there is hope which is only found in Christ. Sin will be called sin, not sickness.

Your son will be encouraged to reconcile with those he has sinned against and taught that all sin is ultimately against God. Daily biblical counseling and weekly church attendance in a family centered church starts each week off with the proper emphasis.
