Sorenson's Ranch is a co-educational boarding and residential school for the treatment of troubled teens 13 - 17 with average and above average ability. We serve students with histories of problems with parents, substance abuse, low or nonexistent self-esteem, learning difficulties, running away, dropping out or being expelled from school, and extreme mental stress.
Sorenson's is a licensed residential treatment. We are accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges. We are also licensed as a mental health and substance-abuse treatment center with the Utah State Human Services Department and are accredited by the Joint Commission of Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
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.
No scholarships are available, but in some cases religious organizations, state agencies, or insurance companies (depending on the individual policy) will help with some tuition. (Pre-authorization is required.)
Tuition is $5,500 per month with a one-time startup up fee of $2,500.
