KW Legacy Ranch at a Glance
Values Lived and Learned at
Our Three Core Values - Family, Ranch, Legacy
Everything we do is focused around families. Even when working with adolescents, the most effective treatment must always involve the family. That is why we established KW Legacy Ranch as a family focused program. Whether your entire family is out on the ranch working together, or it’s just your teen, we are focused on giving everybody the tools and experiences you need to be a happy, successful family.

Therapy in a Natural Setting
The beauty of the ranch is that therapy can take place in a natural setting in addition to the formalized counseling that takes place. Many of our students have participated in outpatient therapy at home. Sometimes this has helped and other times it hasn’t seemed to make any difference. When outpatient therapy hasn’t been effective, it’s typically because the teen has either told the therapist what it is they think they want to hear, or they refuse to open up at all. Read more . . .
We work closely with you as parents and with the school your child is coming from to customize the curriculum based on your child’s current standing. We will then pick up from there and move forward with the needed course work. We offer a wide range of courses, and the credits earned while at the ranch can be transferred upon completion of the program. Read more . . .
Enrolling your child in treatment and allowing someone else to care for your most prized possession will be one of the hardest things you will ever have to do. Understand that we don’t take this responsibility lightly. In fact, it keeps many of us up at nights thinking about your children like they were our own and trying to discover the best ways to help them. Our students follow a structured schedule for their daily activities. Please see how a normal day unfolds on the ranch. Hopefully this schedule, although incomplete, will help give you some comfort knowing what your child will typically be doing. Read more . . .
In addition to the local ranch, we utilize a beautiful piece of private ground in the mountains where we will sometimes go to work on projects and camp. This ground includes a rustic cabin, a natural spring, orchards, and corrals for animals. Read more . . .
