Ashcreek Ranch Academy is a ranch for boys where boys become young men. Our unique horsemanship and ranching environment teaches the value of hard work, respect, and accountability, while our residential setting feels like home—warm, friendly, and inviting. Every part of our ranch for troubled youth is designed specifically for young men. From our approach in therapy, to the classroom, to the daily schedule everything we do was developed to meet the emotional and behavioral needs of struggling teen boys.
We’ve created a clean, modern, home-like ranch for troubled youth designed specifically to make boys feel welcome and at home. Here young men learn the value of doing difficult things and find confidence as they learn to trust themselves as they earn the trust of their horses.
Whether underperforming or struggling to achieve academically, our young men receive personal attention from experienced, credentialed teachers in real classroom setting. Students learn valuable learning skills often neglected at traditional public schools.
We’re located in the heart of Southern Utah’s color country – the gateway to Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Lake Powell and minutes from 3 State Parks. We use our unique environment to engage the body and the mind with outdoor adventure, activities and sports.
