Eagle Ranch Academy is the most comprehensive youth residential program available to troubled teens in Utah. We help teens who are struggling with substance and alcohol abuse, medical diagnoses such as ADHD, weight related disorders or clinical depression, kids who have emotional issues related to coping with divorce or avoidance issues (running away).
We are actually a working ranch, and use work around the ranch as well as work in the community a part of the program. Physical labor gives teens a sense of purpose and satisfaction when they are completed. They are an important part of the regimen of therapy, nutritional and medical care we provide. Although residential programs are often considered harsh places for teens in popular culture, the reality is that they are licensed centers where a troubled teen can get access to a whole host of specialists under one umbrella, while learning about themselves and building bonds with each other.
At Eagle Ranch Academy, we have all licensed professionals available on hand to help teens troubled by many different types of problems, such as clinical psychologists, behavioral psychologists, medical doctors, psychiatrists, nurses and even therapists who are ‘embedded’ in the small 12 person classes students are grouped in. Our menu is developed by a certified nutritionist and is cooked daily in compliance with the food and nutrition guidelines of the state of Utah. Our work and fitness programs are run by a fitness trainer, and diet and/or weight control programs are individually tailored to your child’s needs.
In addition to hard work and the expert care of medical professionals, we employ a range of programs unique to Eagle Ranch Academy so that we can reach different kinds of troubled teens. These include our Value Based Program, Emotional Growth Seminars, Life Coaching Skills Program, Graduation Workshops, and After Care Program. Our residential program has been thoroughly researched and backed by groups like Answers for Parents (AFP).
Our Value based program teaches teens that rewards are earned, helping them with their follow through, their anger responses, and to cultivate positive ways of attaining what they want.
Our Emotional Growth Seminars are intended to provide help to students and parents, so they can learn about how to deal with the root situation that is making the teen act out and how to cope emotionally with each other during conflicts. It also promotes self-introspection in the teen.
Our Graduation Workshops provide a goal for teens to work towards, as well as milestones to help guide them throughout the process, as well as sense of accomplishment.
Our Life Coaching Skills Program teaches teens real life skills to help them cope with the challenges they will face as adults, and helps them to feel secure about their abilities to overcome them later on.
Our After Care Program is a long term support resource where students (and parents) who have graduated can come for continued help. Alumni also have the option of serving in this program, so they never have to lose the bonds they created at Eagle ranch Academy.
Lastly, remember that we help gifted troubled teens who are performing beneath their abilities; so that means our academic program is of the highest quality. It is enhanced not only with qualified instructors, but with the expertise of educational psychologists.
