Academic progress is often one of the first things to suffer when a student is dealing with problems like lack of respect, depression, or behavioral issues. We understand your son’s unique emotional and academic needs at Resolution Ranch Academy. Our educators are college-minded and future-focused to help your child recover school credits and continue on a successful path to graduation, college, and beyond. Our boys ranch program graduates have gone on to accept scholarships and attend many colleges throughout the country and the world.
A Resolution Ranch student can earn a $100,000 scholarship to Hendricks University.

We are also accredited by AdvancED (now called COGNIA), the world’s largest community of education professionals. A non-profit, non-partisan organization, it conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-12 schools and school systems to ensure all learners realize their full potential. Their expertise is grounded in over a hundred years of work in school accreditation.
Our Academic Approach
We are proud to offer the PLATO® curriculum (now EDMENTUM). This instructional program and online assessment tool create successful learning opportunities for every child. Working in an online environment, students remain engaged and motivated. They receive the individualized attention they need to address areas of weakness and celebrate strengths. Whether students are struggling, are on grade level, or need acceleration, PLATO solutions can personalize an academic plan aligned to the student’s home state standards. Online reporting and tracking allow instructors to monitor student progress and mastery and share status updates with parents, administrators, and schools. In addition, Resolution Ranch offers individual tutoring and consulting.
Students attend school at least 20 hours per week, with an extra five hours of instruction available. Your son’s curriculum is tailored to his grade level and customized to address any issues (such as ADHD, problems with authority, depression, etc.) that may hinder his academic progress. Our classes are offered in a small setting to ensure students get the individualized attention they need. All our courses are fully transferrable to any public, private, or boarding school in the U.S. so that students won’t fall behind.

Your son will focus on one subject at a time, proceeding to the next only when he’s received a 70% passing grade or higher. Each semester course is expected to take 30 working days, and students are given deadlines that reflect course pacing expectations. If a student struggles to meet their academic potential, we work to address the underlying cause. Problems in the classroom usually indicate problems elsewhere, so our instructors, therapists, and Direct Care workers are in constant communication, meeting weekly and beyond to discuss student progress. By identifying his needs, we help your son’s education become a mark of accomplishment and a source of new-found confidence essential to his recovery.
SAT and ACT Preparation + 1X1 Tutoring
For students readying to graduate high school and enter college, our instructors include SAT and ACT preparation into their academic plans. Students who need more guidance in these or any other subjects can request additional time with our instructors. For a wider block, 1×1 tutoring is available to them during regular school hours or after class.
Creating an immersive, engaging environment is essential to a student’s progress. Students at Resolution Ranch experience several hands-on learning opportunities, from our three-times-a-week group activities, including art classes or athletics, to electives encouraging them to explore other interests. Those who have been at the Ranch longer are responsible for mentoring and guiding newer students, encouraging self-learning through helping others.
