830. Ministerial Christian Academy

In 2004 the authorities intervened against an unregistered boarding school located in Pomona, California. The authorities removed handcuffs, shackles, computers, financial records and other documents during the raid.

While one of the employees were arrested on suspicion of rape with a foreign object and sexual battery of a female student, later the police dropped the case. The employee was a registered sex offender.

The media coverage of the raid spoke of students being restrained in handcuffs, left for hours in cramped, darkened storage rooms and forced into a cold swimming pool as punishments.

It is not clear if the investigation led to real prison time or a plea deal involving fines.

It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.

    I went to this school… it was absolutely horrible and I’ve had to work though trauma from it my whole life now. I’ve been trying to find the people I was there with for so long. If you have any mire information I would really appreciate it.
