  • At Cherokee Creek Boys School, our mission is to "challenge boys and their families to discover what is real and true about themselves and the world around them." Cherokee Creek Boys School is a warm, positive, nurturing learning community that offers the benefits of small enrollment, hands-on academics, therapy, counseling, recreation and a talented staff dedicated to helping boys find their way back to a life of balance and harmony.
  • We do this by weaving time for fun, play and laughter; daily exercise; a balanced diet; music; love and support systems; creative outlets for hobbies and activities and time in nature into a healthy and healing living environment for students and staff.
  • Our students are young and Cherokee Creek is a perfect place for "boys to be boys." Our wooded campus is surrounded by state and national parks and wildlife refuges that put boys in touch with the wonder of nature. The region boasts rugged, forested mountains, scenic lakes, gorgeous waterfalls, and some of the best whitewater rafting in the country.
  • We strive to create a place where "boys can be boys," providing activities that can ignite their interest in learning and exploring, and have the potential to become life-long hobbies or interests.

Cherokee Creek is truly the small school with the big heart - it is an amazing place. It saved our son and our family, giving us a new future. I will be forever grateful for the incredible support, guidance and care that every single staff member gave our whole family. I would highly recommend Cherokee Creek.
