First and foremost, I enjoy my beautiful wife and our amazing daughter. We enjoy spending time together outdoors and being with our extended families. I enjoy trying new things and learning new skills. I have learned that the joys of this life are experienced better when experienced with the friends and family with which we have relationships. We loved the forested mountains of Montana and now are eagerly exploring the red rocks of Southern Utah.

Comments on DRA

It feels good to find a place where the emphasis is put on the child as a whole; who cares for where the individual is today and seems to genuinely care for where that individual is headed. Diamond Ranch Academy puts the well being of the individual first and helps them become the best version of themselves.
