Welcome to Turn-About Ranch! 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.

Our website provides a wealth of information about the many features that make Turn-About Ranch 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.

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, they 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 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 our program remains a safe and supportive place for your child. We promise to never do less than our absolute best in providing them with the personalized care needed for a lasting positive change.

We also make a concerted effort to ensure you will remain an informed and active presence in your child’s life as they progress through our program.

Thank you again for your interest in Turn-About Ranch and 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.

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!


The staff were actually really nice and they spoke to my son with respect and admiration for the changes he had made already. You could tell there was mutual respect from time and experience. -Tiffany K. (Google Reviews)



My son was struggling and TAR helped him and gave him life skills. He is home now and doing amazing! Not to say there are always bumps in the road, but this facility is one that works.

At TAR, doing real work, solving real problems daily was the game-changer... My son has learned how to express his feelings more frequently. He listens more carefully and expects to be listened to. He has come to understand the benefits and value of hard work... We have a long way to go. But we have more positives and more potential to move forward on a positive trajectory than we have had in many years... I firmly believe none of his would have happened without TAR.

We sent our son to Turn-About and I can't say enough good things about this program. The first time I spoke with them they actually gave me some things that they thought I could do at home to possibly work through our issues and not have to use the program! I was immediately impressed that they were concerned with my son and not just selling an enrollment. My son learned so much there and loved all of the staff members. They put their hearts and souls into helping the kids that are there... They gave us a ton of resources to make sure we keep the momentum and have a smooth transition back to home life... It was life changing for everyone of my family members that were involved.

This place has made all the difference, and saved our 16 year old daughter’s life. Previous counseling, hospitalization, and medications did not work, and we were about to give up on her. She’s come out of this program strong, honest, and positive with herself, and future. The people employed at the ranch are caring, genuine, and simply put, one of a kind. Thank you, for giving us our daughter back.

My 14 year old daughter graduated from Turn-About Ranch about 2 months ago and is the best she has ever been... I am beyond grateful that her journey led her to the people who are so gracious, patient, and brutally honest... This is where the most effective therapy took place for her… where she learned to turn suggested tools/ideas/concepts into action and have her eyes opened to new better ways of shaping her perspective, relationships, communication, and living life by higher morals and values...  this [program] does it right!  ...My daughter loves them, misses them and wants to visit on her one year anniversary… but she doesn’t want to return as a resident either… it’s really brilliant!
