Hope Ranch Learning Academy Photo #2 - HOPE Ranch Learning Academy's campus in Hudson is set on 10 acres of beautifully maintained land surrounded by twisted Oaks, meditation fountain and garden, and horse stables. Seven horses are used in the education, transformation, and restoration process.
Hope Ranch Learning Academy Photo #3 - Horse riding and therapy is an integral part of all we do. We use the horses for social skills training, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, and mental health psychotherapy.
Hope Ranch Learning Academy Photo #4 - Our meditation fountain and garden is a great spot to defuse from the day's stress and just think and relax.
Hope Ranch Learning Academy Photo #5 - Every year in May the students put on a Horse Jamboree where their parents, friends, family, and the supporting community is invited to witness the incredible accomplishment these students have made through the year.
HOPE Ranch Learning Academy opened its doors in May 2005 and is registered as a Private School with the Florida Department of Education.
The school's mission is to foster hope rather than despair, potential rather than limitation, healing rather than hurting, belonging rather than isolation and what the future can be rather than what the past has been.
HOPE Ranch Learning Academy has quickly become the standard for success in educating children with Autism and other forms of learning disabilities.
Set in a working horse ranch, the horses provide a fun riding time as school incentive as well as therapeutically in physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, mental health psychotherapy, and social skills training.

The miracles I have personally seen at this school are amazing. Students are advancing 3-4 grade levels in one academic year. Social skills in children with autism are developing and for the first time they are having friends over to their homes for sleep overs, going out bowling, enjoying each other's company and friendship. Jesus Christ's power to heal, transform, and restore is at work here.
