Sorenson's Ranch provides a comprehensive program of school, therapy, community service, ranch work, and activities. We aim to help students heal develop self worth through academic, social, and extracurricular success. Sorenson's Ranch is a place for our students to get "back-to-nature" away from big-city influences. We believe that learning takes place not only in a formal classroom, but also in all activities our students participate in.
Program Type - Boarding School
Co-educational boarding school, residential school and treatment for troubled youths with average and above average ability.
Located on a working ranch in Southern Utah, the school is situated in an open wilderness area broken up by rustic streams and ponds. Student housing consist of ten rustic cabins and dorms all with attached restrooms. There is a counseling office, a kitchen, an infirmary, a game room, hiking trails, playing fields, and animal/tack facilities. The lodge houses a multipurpose room for dining and activities.
Sorenson's academic program is year-round. The competency-based curriculum provides all the courses necessary for the student to earn a Utah high school diploma. Classes are based on a mastery of skills rather than on "seat time" with no quarters or semester system.
