A Message from Our Director

michelle headshot 2 PDW 12Welcome to the Turn-About Ranch website, and thank you for taking a few moments to learn about our program.

At Turn-About Ranch, we understand that the decision to enroll your child in a residential program is never an easy one. I want to personally assure you that I and every other member of our team are committed to working with you, to earning and retaining your trust, and to ensuring that you remain informed, engaged, and actively involved in your child’s progress.

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. They also reap the benefits of doing things the right way, and deal with the consequences when they or their teammates come up short.

This website provides a wealth of information about the many features that make Turn-About Ranch such an effective place – such as our strong accredited academic program, our sophisticated clinical model, and the unique experience of contributing to an actual working ranch.

On this page, though, I’d like to take a moment to talk about the true heart and soul of Turn-About Ranch: the people who come to work here every day with the sole goal of guiding young people along the path toward a healthy and productive future.

When your child enrolls at Turn-About Ranch, he or she will work with a team of professionals whose skills are surpassed only by their compassion and dedication. In the classroom, during therapy sessions, and on the ranch, our staff members work in active collaboration with our students to ensure that they are receiving the guidance, support, and supervision they need.

Simply put, the members of the Turn-About team have dedicated their lives to helping students and families. We place a premium on ensuring that our program remains a safe and supportive place for your child, and we promise to never do less than our absolute best in providing him or her with the personalized care that will lead to lasting positive change. We also make a concerted effort to ensure that you will remain an informed and active presence in your child’s life as he or she progresses through our program.

Thank you again for your interest in Turn-About Ranch, and for spending a few moments here to learn more about our program. If you have any specific questions for me or any other members of our staff, please call 800-842-1165 or visit our Contact page at your convenience.

From the entire Turn-About Ranch team, I wish you and your family all the best as you work toward a bright and beautiful future!
