Resolution Ranch

Resolution Ranch AcademyResolution Ranch Academy in Cameron, Texas (near Austin) is a place where addicted or at-risk boys age 13-17 can can solve their issues and gain a new perspective on life. Nature has a way of bringing us down to earth and rekindling meaningful introspection. Outdoor activities like fishing on the lake, hiking the trails, and horseback riding, help students reconnect with the world and the people in it.

On 500 acres of open ranch land, Resolution Ranch has an enrollment of approximately 32 students, with a 25 full-time staff. Boys benefit from seven of our staff members on his team—our licensed therapists, equine therapists, direct care workers, teachers, childcare administrators, and counselors work together to provide 24/7 supervision and support. This consistent interaction encourages camaraderie among students and staff, helping them achieve honest communication and meaningful progress.

Resolution Ranch AcademyFounded in 2004, by former NFL player Scott McGarrahan, Resolution Ranch Academy is a therapeutic boarding school that helps teenage boys struggling with behavioral issues, life failure, or addiction. Boys get back on track toward a brighter future. For an average of six to nine months, students experience a positive, nurturing environment focused on guiding personal growth through responsibility, gratitude and open communication. 

Resolution Ranch clinical therapists are specialists in treating boys who are headed for trouble. To help foster trust and collaboration between each boy and his therapist, our approach focuses on open, honest communication in a supportive and nurturing setting. During your son’s stay here, his day will be structured around multiple types of therapeutic services, including Individual Therapy, Group Therapy, and Family Therapy.

As boys progress through the program, they make their way through the five levels of growth that make up our effective R.A.N.C.H. system: Recovery and Academics through Nature, Counseling, and Healing.

The overall and domain scores range from 100-400. Resolution Ranch is proud to have attained an Overall Score Average of 325.00—well above the average Overall Score of 282.79—and a Leadership Capacity Score of 340.00.  .

We are also accredited by AdvancED, the largest community of education professionals in the world. A non-profit, non-partisan organization, it conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. Their expertise is grounded in more than a hundred years of work in school accreditation.

Students attend school for a minimum of 20 hours per week with an extra five hours of instruction available as needed. 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 be hindering his academic progress. To ensure students get the individualized attention they need, our classes are offered in a small setting. All our courses are fully transferrable to any public, private or boarding school in the U.S., so students won’t fall behind.

Resolution Ranch AcademyA Character-Building Program 

Helping others, embracing responsibility, and communicating are all important components to the Resolution Ranch program. We believe being good to others is essential to building character and self-worth. When a student takes responsibility for himself and for helping someone besides himself, he learns the value of humility, gratitude, and compassion.

Twice a week, your son will participate in two Life Space Interviews with his Direct Care Worker. These mentoring sessions are a way for us discuss and assess anything your son may be feeling or going through, both personally and within the community. Life Space Interview reports are written after every interview and sent to the therapist. Your child’s Direct Care Worker and Therapist are constantly working together to keep informed of his progress.

This program includes a number of elements, but their overall goal is to see boys prepared to transition successfully back to a normal and healthy lifestyle, whether that be college, ministry or the workforce. Ideally, we want to see every young man following God.

Spiritual Direction and Growth

They have a supportive relationship with a local church, which supports the work and ministry of New Hope Boys Home and also provides a church home. Boys and staff attend services and participate in missions projects. Boys also work through the Teen Challenge discipleship curriculum as part of the program requirements.

Positive Environment

New Hope Boys HomeThe “Positive Peer Culture” means an environment where making right choices is accepted and encouraged. Boys who have been “following the wrong crowd” into destructive behaviors instead find themselves pushed by their peers toward responsibility, integrity, and growth. We reward positive choices. Our campus promotes teamwork and accountability among students as well. As they progress through the program, boys advance through three levels that govern privileges and indicate progress. To promote a boy to the next level, our staff look for evidence of personal growth in matters of attitude, character and personal conduct. The third and highest level carries with it expectations of and training in leadership skills.

Family Restoration

boys homeThey desire to see families healed and restored. They invite parents to visit with their son on campus once each month. These family days give families time to restore relationships within the supportive environment on campus. Parents also have the opportunity to spend time with other parents and with our staff and to receive Godly counsel.

Healthy Futures
