A Place for Discovery
Founded in 2004 by former NFL player Scott McGarrahan, Resolution Ranch Academy is a boarding school in texas that helps troubled teenagers get back on track toward a brighter future. Students ages 13 to 17 live on our campus in Cameron, Texas, for an average of six to nine months. Ours is a positive, nurturing environment that guides personal growth through responsibility, gratitude, and open communication.
Back to Nature
Our school, situated on 500 acres of open ranch land, is a place where boys can unplug from the noise of the modern world. Nature has a way of bringing us down to earth and rekindling meaningful introspection. Outdoor activities like fishing on the lake, hiking the trails, and horseback riding, help students reconnect with the world and the people in it.
A Nurturing Environment & Family Atmosphere
An enrollment of approximately 32 students with a full-time staff of 25 gives Resolution Ranch a family-style atmosphere. Your son benefits from seven of our staff members on his team—our licensed therapists, equine therapists, direct care workers, teachers, child care administrators, and counselors working together to provide 24/7 supervision and support. This consistent interaction encourages camaraderie and openness among students and staff, helping them achieve honest communication and meaningful progress.
An Alternative to Teen Boot Camps
Resolution Ranch Academy is not a teen boot camp. We don’t use military tactics to coerce teens into obeying the rules. We are, first and foremost, advocates for your child and their future. Our R.A.N.C.H Program (Recovery and Academics through Nature, Counseling, and Healing) revolves around self-growth and progress earned through responsibility, work, self-awareness, and dialogue. Our goal is not to change your child but to guide him through re-evaluating his path and rediscovering his true self.
