Diamond Ranch Academy was a livesaver for my son and our family. A year ago, my then 16 year old son was failing out of, and cutting classes at, his third high school in three years. He was struggling with personal, academic and mental health issues – and my wife and I had reached the end of our rope. Our son’s future, our family life and our other kids were all a mess. Not knowing what to do, and having little information concerning DRA other than calls with a few of the family references, we made the difficult decision to send our son to DRA. After 5-6 months, we began to see a change – our son started to feel better about himself, he started to return to his normal personality, he began to have hopes for his future – and he learned the mental, personal and educational skills needed to make those hopes a reality. Now, a year later, he has left DRA, is a week or so away from getting his high school diploma, and has been accepted into a four year national college. Without DRA, its wonderful staff and our son’s hard work, we would not be in this situation today.

Hi, my name is Mary. We have a daughter at DRA. It was a hard decision trying to find the best place for her to get the help she needed. The first day we visited DRA, we meet the counselor's and staff members. They explained their educational program and what they had to offer the kids during their stay there. We were very impressed with their program and well educated staff. DRA is professional yet very caring towards the kids. We toured the facility and spoke to some of the children, at that moment, I knew in my heart this would be the best place for my daughter. DRA has meet and excelled over my expectations! I am forever grateful for the help they have given her and the knowledge she has gained during her stay there. DRA taught my daughter the importance of family, choosing good friends, good morals and values in life, and the importance to have respect for herself. They let my daughter know to believe in herself and set goals to accomplish. My daughter is now on track to graduate this year and I couldn't be more proud of all the hard work she has put in to succeed. DRA kept me informed of any updates and changes regarding my daughter. The staff was always available and promptly returned my calls to answer my questions.I would recommend DRA to any parent who is trying to find help for their child and is having a hard time with the best place for them. I recommend to call and make the visit to Diamond Ranch Academy if you are undecided. I'm not an easy person to convince or persuade but once I saw their program and spoke with staff, I knew this was the place! DRA was life changing for my daughter. I can't thank Diamond Ranch Academy enough for bringing my daughter back to me. I will always be grateful to them and keep them in my prayers that they may continue to be successful in helping all the kids that attend DRA. They are now my extended family and love them all.Forever Grateful, Mary
My son is benefiting from all the care and attention he is receiving at DRA. He is playing sports, doing well in school, and is learning to self-care with the guidance of all the dedicated professionals at DRA, including coaches, therapists, teachers, medical staff, counselors, and others. My son has not yet graduated the program or high school, but we remain hopeful for his bright future and college plans thanks to the guidance and assistance of the many caring, wonderful professionals at DRA. Thanks to all!
We toured the facility to make sure that it was what we were looking for. The facility is like no other, at least no other that we have seen. The staff was friendly and the students all seemed content with where they were. I think that by visiting the facility it gave us strong feeling of comfort.
