Areas of Focus
Special Ed

Serving students with special learning challenges is an integral part of our fully accredited academic program.

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.

    Clinton Dorny - EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

    At a very young age Clinton realized that he could have an impact on others lives through service and being involved. He is happiest when he is making a difference in others lives. Clinton is married and has four children. He loves spending time with them doing just about anything. They are his life. Clinton uses the same principles that they teach at the Ranch at home with his kids. It works. Clinton fell into this industry because his brothers have worked in other Residential Treatment Centers.
