A Message from our Director

Turn-About Ranch is a special place that provides a unique set of services to struggling young people and their families.

Our students don’t just learn about concepts like leadership, teamwork, accountability, and responsibility – they put these concepts into practice in a real-world environment. Turn-About Ranch students reap the benefits of doing things the right way, and deal with the consequences when they or their teammates come up short. Read more

Our Philosophy

The philosophy of Turn-About Ranch can be summarized in six simple words: Real ranch. Real values. Real change.

At Turn-About Ranch, we place great emphasis on providing authentic experiences through which our students can learn and grow.

Because we are a real, working cattle ranch, students come to appreciate that what they do isn’t “busywork” or punishment – they are completing important tasks that are essential to the continued productive operation of the ranch. Learn more
