Academics at Master’s Ranch Girls Academy
Excel Now, Improve Potential
At Master’s Ranch Girls Academy, at-risk girls thrive in a learning environment that centers on balance and creativity with flexible schedules, allowing each girl to learn and catch up at her own pace. Our overall goal is to support development skills, increase mastery and retention through repetition and review.
Master’s Ranch Girls Academy at Belle Vie understands that struggling teen girls:
- Have different learning styles and learn at different rates
- Have varying talents and academic potential
- Differ in learning abilities: auditory, visual, kinesthetic/tactile stimuli.
Whether your girl needs academic credit recovery, or typically excels at school, she can enroll in fully accredited year-round academics, and online classes, coordinated with local Public Schools. We also provide excellent educational opportunities on site with a nationally accredited curriculum through Western Christian Academy.
