A Vacation Home Turned Therapeutic Haven
Our Cedar City campus began as a private vacation home for an American industrialist. The main lodge has since been converted to office space. Three private homes are now student dorms that comfortably house girls. Each house features a living area, small kitchen, bedrooms, and baths. Our lodge features a commercial kitchen, dining area, game room, theater room, and indoor pool and sauna. Our school is housed in a waterfront building that boasts beautiful views of the mountains to the east and water area to the northwest. With 60+ acres of space, our campus includes stables, a riding arena, putting green, waterfall, and a man-made pond stocked with native fish.
While our facility provides lots of fun activities, each part actually plays a specific role in the therapy process. Residential living is a critical part of our experiential, action-oriented therapy approach. Mentors and supervisors bring a love of teens, along with a wealth of experience, to the task of creating a home away from home for girls at Discovery Ranch.
Therapists and residential staff work together to create an environment where girls feel safe, respected, and supported. Discovery Ranch has a four-to-one ratio of students to staff. Our emphasis is not on managing behaviors but on building positive relationships that inspire change. Residential activities reinforce what students are learning clinically. They become an opportunity for girls to “walk the talk.”
“People come from all over the world because they don’t have these facilities.”
“It was just a very good feeling leaving here and thinking I can see my child in this setting. I really could.”
