Our Values and Beliefs

Ashcreek Ranch Academy Defined

Ashcreek Academy Defined

The Foundation of Our Program for Boys

At Ashcreek Academy we work with boys who struggle seeing value in themselves and behaviorally acting out in search of that value.  These behaviors may include isolating, shutting down, trauma, attachment issues, substance abuse, defiance, anger, manipulation, lying, misuse of technology, school avoidance and negative choice of friends.

When students graduate, they have developed a sense of personal value, knowledge, and resources to deal with life obstacles which provide them with a solid foundation for a successful future.

Through individual, group and family therapy, experiential learning, and community living- students develop confidence, a strong work ethic, build boundaries and create healthy relationships.

We know our program works!  We track our success through our commitment to ongoing aftercare services and long-term outcome studies.

Our Values

We believe in an environment with strong values and core principles. It drives our daily decisions and these values are integral to the fabric of the Ashcreek community.

Combining a home-like residential setting with a rigorous experiential therapy program, every student learns about being self-aware, hard-working, respectful, accountable, and being thoughtful in their decision making.
