Welcome to Boys ranches! We hope you will give us a call at (406) 889-5995 or (406) 889-5994 so we can tell you about the exciting things that are happening here at A Boys Ranch.
Our student population is 24 boys. We are a small, nurturing program. As a result, there are times when we fill up quickly and are at capacity, so it is important to contact us as soon as possible when you are interested in enrolling a student. Enrollment is year-round and can happen quite quickly if needed.
Our program is designed for a minimum stay of 12 months, which is needed in order for both the change in your boy to happen and for it to become ingrained in their life. However, on special cases we do take in boys for shorter periods of time.
We provide an accredited education and can often help your boy get caught up, or retake credits, if he has gotten behind in school or had poor grades. The length of stay will be tailored to the individual needs of the student and family and how quickly he gets with the program.
We know how difficult this time is for you and your family. Our goal is to make this as easy and hassle-free as possible.
Call us for our current tuition rates, which are far below other typical therapeutic boarding schools, or fill in the form below and we’ll connect with you at a convenient time.
There are several options for getting your son to us.
A Boys Ranch has very limited partial scholarships available once or twice a year. Student Loans are made available via a third party. We are pleased to offer parents assistance with the loan process.
Please contact: Rosie Harrell – Director of Admissions at 406-889-5995 or 406-889-5994

"We tried counselors and medication but nothing seemed to be helping. Through the grace of God we found the Ranch. Right from the first phone call we had a connection. Within the first few months we saw a remarkable change in attitude and behavior. We feel you saved our child"
"Praise the Lord for this program!!! I was BLOWN AWAY by Trevor this past weekend! He was polite, respectful, patient, loving, etc. I could see a real improvement in his attitude and behavior! The most INCREDIBLE part, though, was his obvious knowledge of and love for the Lord! Thank you"
"This letter is to express our gratitude for the investment you made in our son’s life over the past year. He has grown tremendously towards being a good young man and you all certainly helped put his life back on course. He really misses you guys and I’m sure he"

"While here, I have learned a lot of things. I’ve learned how to handle my anger, what lying leads to and rebellion. Of all the things I have learned, I have learned about God. Before I came here I knew nothing about God and I am happy I know Him"
"I am very thankful that my parents sent me. I would have never learned to deal with my problems. I also learned to make the right choice to lead others in the right direction. When I go home I will tell people about Jesus and help people to accept Christ"
"When I first arrived, I had so much anger inside me. I even looked dark and angry. Since then I have worked through a lot of things and during my time there I learned that work for God is not a competition. Everything was a competition to me before. Now"

"Ryan has been through a metamorphosis during his stay. It is quite remarkable to hear him speak about his faith in God and the relationships he has formed with staff members. This experience delivered Ryan from a serious path toward imminent destruction."
