Cherry Gulch is an accredited therapeutic boarding school for boys ages 10 to 14 with various difficulties including ADHD, learning differences, oppositional-defiance, depression, low self-esteem, poor motivation, anger, anxiety, family conflict, and other behavioral and emotional problems. Located beneath the western slope of the Rocky Mountains near Boise, Idaho, in the North West Pacific region of the United States (east of Washington State), we are equipped to handle very difficult students as well as "softer" students with more internalizing behaviors.
Cherry Gulch is a ranch style therapeutic boarding school designed specifically for 10 to 14 year old boys. We are passionate about providing early intervention and prevention to help boys reach their full potential and become well-rounded prosocial young men.
We are dedicated to providing outstanding academic and therapeutic services to students and their families in the context of a safe, supportive environment and work toward “Building Brighter Tomorrows for the Boys of Today.”
We are licensed by the State of Idaho, our school is accredited by Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, and we have been selected by Woodbury Reports for their "Excellence in Education" award two years in a row. Our chess team was State Champions in the novice division in both 2008, 2009 & 2010.
A unique therapeutic environment is provided where every experience is educational and therapeutic in a fun purposeful environment. We strive to entwine the most effective therapeutic strategies into the student’s daily life.
We offer at least 10 hours of scheduled therapeutic services a week but much more therapy takes place as life unfolds and a therapeutic moment arises. Our therapeutic services take shape as creative approaches to empirically-based treatments and include individual, group, and family therapy, with experienced doctorate and masters level therapists.
We also offer equine assisted psychotherapy and a wide variety of active experiential learning and therapeutic activities.
