Our therapeutic boarding school is a Christian residential program focused on character maturity and family restoration. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like environment where troubled adolescents take on better life attitudes, grow in their belief, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and triumph over their challenges and problems. They balance hard work with engaging recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Their remote ranch locations are a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
A therapeutic boarding school that strives to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents come to boys ranches from across the country, including from Nevada, and often find it valuable to spend time in a new environment away from negative peers near home.
Each adolescent begins by establishing a relationship with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores build a solid work ethic and numerous other positive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can work through the destructive choices that had held him or her back. Boys ranches also usually provide individual and group counseling to bring change in attitudes and behaviors.
Students at A Boys Ranch are usually provided a fully-accredited education, transferrable credits, and real teachers. All credits received transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced attribute of the coursework suits our students well, making it possible for them to learn as they do best and catch up on any missed credits. They believe that responsibility and a disciplined life plays a key role in any productive education, and they communicate this in the classroom. In addition, vocational training topics can include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration happens only with the full cooperation of parents. Parents are usually invited to attend family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen on our campus. They assist frequent contact between the students and their parents using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
Through mentorship, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we teach values and character traits that will be profitable for your child into adulthood. Please consider looking beyond Nevada to see how boys ranches can lead to restoration in your family.

|Therapeutic boarding schools for troubled boys in Nevada:|
Nevada is a state in the western, mountain west, and southwestern regions of the United States. Nevada is the 7th most extensive, the 35th most populous, and the 9th least densely populated of the 50 United States. It is the most extensive U.S. state that does not border Canada, Mexico, or an ocean. Over two-thirds of Nevada’s people live in the Las Vegas metropolitan area, which contains its three largest incorporated cities. Nevada’s capital is Carson City. Nevada is largely desert and semiarid, with much of it located within the Great Basin. Areas south of the Great Basin are located within the Mojave Desert, while Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada mountains lie on the western edge. Approximately 86% of the state’s land is owned by the US government under various jurisdictions, both civilian and military. The name Nevada is derived from the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains, which means “snow-capped mountain range” in Spanish. The land comprising the modern state was inhabited by Native Americans of the Paiute, Shoshone, and Washoe tribes prior to European contact. It was subsequently claimed by Spain as a part of Alta California until the Mexican War of Independence brought it under Mexican control. .
