Why DRA?

No one does it like Diamond Ranch Academy. We have originated an extraordinary therapeutic approach, built an extraordinary campus, and assembled an extraordinary team.  In fact, there is nothing ordinary about this stellar program.

We have six treatment programs located on one 55-acre campus. This was done with your child in mind to enhance opportunities for their success. This structure allows specific, customized care for each student in their individual therapeutic program while providing top-of-the-line facilities only a large campus can offer. Students have access to significantly more resources than any other school.

Our facilities are beautiful and state-of-the-art, but it is our people that make the difference; it is our people who change lives. All of our teachers have Bachelor’s or Masters’s degrees in their related areas of expertise and meet strict licensing requirements from the Utah State Office of Education and the Northwest Association Accreditation (NWAC). All of our Doctorate or Master’s level therapists are professionally licensed with the State of Utah as Mental Health Professionals. Our administration and staff consist of a vibrant group of educated professionals that understand the importance of helping families.

The Diamond Ranch Academy experience begins with a weeklong orientation. During this phase, our key people spend time getting to know each new student intimately. Every department is showcased, introducing your child to the many possibilities available.

The DRA experience continues as our teams of professionals work closely together to educate our students and parents with the essential tools and techniques geared toward healing individual and family relationships. These methods and practices are tried and tested and have proven successful time and time again.
