About Us

What is Rancho Santa Marta?

Rancho Santa Marta is a non-denominational Evangelical Christian Ministry for needy Mexican children. Our Mission and Vision is to expand the reach of the Gospel in our region of Mexico by meeting the needs for these children-at-risk. We provide this primarily on our 450-acre ranch property near San Vicente, a town 130 miles south of San Diego on the Baja California peninsula. Our two foundational programs are a home for homeless, orphaned or abused children, and a kindergarten, elementary, junior high and high school with a special education mainstreaming program for children with learning disabilities.

Purpose Statement

RSM is a Christ-centered home for at risk and special need Mexican children, youth and adults with disabilities that provides a safe and loving environment as well as a Christian school  allowing them to develop:

  • Physically – core needs of food, shelter, and medical attention;
  • Emotionally – proper counseling and nurturing; discipline and emotional healing;
  • Socially – provide opportunities for positive social interaction;
  • Spiritually – train, equip and model a Christian walk that wants to reach others for Christ;
  • Educationally – student-orientated, hands-on education with a life-skills focus
