A DAY AT THE
RANCH

Scroll down to see what it’s like to be a student at the ranch. Our program is flexible, so it often varies slightly for each student. The following is a glance at some of the key components of our program, and what a typical day is like from start to finish.

 

PHYSICAL
TRAINING

7:30 AM Start

 

Daily exercise provides structure and keeps students motivated by helping them set personal health goals. During the week small group sessions are held on Wednesday afternoon in our on-campus Strength and Conditioning center.

“We build relationships and a strong community through a little sweat while supporting each other.” Neal Staab,        Licensed Instructor

BREAKFAST

9:30 AM Start

 

After working out, students return to their dorm to shower, get dressed, and make their way to breakfast. More than a meal, breakfast nurtures students’ sense of responsibility. They’re trusted with roles such as serving food in a timely manner and making sure the dishes and the kitchen are cleaned up.

CHORES

10:00 AM Start

 

Daily chores help students work on their time management skills and instill a sense of responsibility. Students are in charge of washing and hanging their own laundry; other projects, like building a fence, helping out in the kitchen, or lending a hand for repairs, are assigned based on a student’s interest. Showing initiative is key.

ACADEMICS

11:00 AM Start

 

Academics are customized to each student’s strengths and needs. Our classrooms are set up to limit distractions, with resources like tutoring, ACT and SAT prep readily available. 

“We set these guys up the best we can so they can go straight on to the next level, whether that next level is back into high school or straight into college.”
Eric Benson, Director of Education.

EQUINE THERAPY

1:30 PM Start

 

By working directly with horses and being responsible for their care, students learn about the importance of communication, authenticity, and safety through Equine Therapy.

“The horse reflects the behavior of the person interacting with it. It’s very telling. The horse depends on being able to read you, where you are, what’s going on, what your intentions are.” 
-David Stubbs, Equine Director

THERAPY

Students engage in various forms of therapy throughout the week. This includes individual therapy with one of our licensed clinical therapists, group therapy with 7 to 8 individuals in the community, and family therapy sessions that include parents and siblings. Resolution Ranch therapists specialize in Behavior Modification Therapy and work closely with troubled teens to identify core issues, their roots, and treatment.

GROUP ACTIVITIES

4:00 PM Start

 

Working with others is an essential part of life at Resolution Ranch. Group activities can range from athletics, such as playing football with our Founder, former NFL player Scott McGarrahan, to art classes taught by visiting artists.

“Sometimes each individual can’t solve every problem. But there’s not much we can’t get done, whatever comes up, together.”

— Scott McGarrahan, Founder
