Triangle Cross Ranch for Troubled Boys


Triangle Cross Ranch is a Catholic based, therapeutic boarding school that serves struggling teenage boys. On our 40,000 acre ranch, we utilize unique "cowboy" experiences to help heal our troubled boys with a true Christian love that will exist within them. Our family environment will help build the moral conscience of your son, enabling him to allow the light of Christ to flourish inside of him. For immediate assistance, please call 866-471-6695.

At Triangle Cross Ranch, we believe that the activities taken place on our working ranch, on top of the clinical and therapeutic aspects offered at our program, will educate the mind, strengthen the body, and elevate the spirit of all troubled boys who come our way seeking help. Our students will learn all aspects of range management, natural spring development, and living a modest life. While these lifestyle changes are taking place, the horse that is assigned to each child plays an extremely important role in the therapy for the troubled youth. Many of our staff members are certified in equine therapy. Equine therapy uses horses as therapeutic tools to help troubled teens recognize their problems and teaches them how to deal with them.

As your son develops in his new environment, becoming more responsible and knowledgeable, he will be able to take on more daily chores and events that make ranch life a maturing and challenging life experience.

Substance Abuse – Addiction

If your wish if for your son to appreciate, and not take for granted what has been provided for him by you, then Triangle Cross Ranch is the place to help him grow in appreciation for all that he has received. Troubled boys that participate in our program leave here with a deeper respect for authority, self-discipline, and a new work ethic that will help them be successful in holding down a job or going to college. Please call 866-471-6695 to speak with our Admissions Directors.
