Areas of Focus
Special Ed

Serving students with special learning challenges is an integral part of our fully accredited academic program. Discovery Ranch has successfully guided many students through high school completion and assisted in the transition to college, vocational training, and employment. We offer comprehensive academic services for students who qualify for individualized instruction due to mild/moderate learning disabilities, ADHD, Emotional Disturbances, behavioral disorders, processing disorders, executive functioning disorders, and others.

Recreation Therapy

Students share and discuss each experience with their therapists. They examine how the obstacles they encountered recreationally are similar to those they face in daily living. They may also discover new recreational interests and abilities to enjoy when they return home.
