Imagine a more powerful therapeutic approach that involves activities boys can enjoy…

Besides traditional one-on-one sessions with their therapists, Discovery Ranch students spend their days in a variety of experiential activities that include:

Our brand of emotionally rich experiential therapy is effective because it lowers students’ defenses and creates a safe environment for change. It doesn’t look or feel like traditional therapy. Our experiential program is more than just a filling time.  It’s a mindset.  Students progress faster because they have more opportunities to practice what they are learning.

Therapeutically intense and carefully supervised, students learn who they really are as they work side by side with therapists and staff who model, motivate, and mentor.

We have high expectations for your student and focus special attention on our accredited
Academic program

Many students have come to the ranch behind in school or struggling to find success in learning. At Discovery Ranch we take your child’s education as serious as our own learning and growth and have worked hard to create an academic atmosphere that allows students the one-on-one attention and focus that is needed to kick start their love of learning and future high school and college success! Many of our students who have progressed through our accredited academic program have begun to find success and enjoyment in their studies and have left better prepared for higher education opportunities.
