Cherry Gulch

     Tel: (208)365-2316
Grades: 5 - 9 | 42 students
Cherry Gulch is a ranch style therapeutic boarding school designed specifically for 10 to 14 year old boys.
We are located on over 200 acres of beautiful land outside of Boise Idaho.
Our services are appropriate for boys with various difficulties including oppositional-defiance, depression, ADHD, learning differences, low self-esteem, poor motivation, anger, anxiety, family conflict, and other behavioral and emotional problems.
 Every experience is educational and therapeutic in a fun purposeful environment.
We strive to offer the most effective therapeutic strategies into daily life.
  We offer at least 10 hours of scheduled therapeutic services a week but much more therapy takes place as life unfolds as therapeutic moments arise.
Our goal is to provide early intervention and prevention to help these boys reach their full potential and to become well-rounded pro-social young men.
We are dedicated to providing outstanding academic and therapeutic services to students and their families in the context of a safe, supportive environment.
