Building brighter tomorrows
for the boys of today.

Cherry Gulch is a small private owner operated, award winning ranch-style therapeutic boarding school designed specifically for 10 to 14 year old boys.

Our goal is to provide early intervention and prevention to help these boys reach their full potential and to become well-rounded prosocial young men. We provide outstanding academic and therapeutic services to boys and their families.

Cherry Gulch offers the wide-open space of country living and the benefit of a metropolitan area. We are located near Boise, Idaho, on 220 acres of pristine ranch land with beautiful views of mountains, valleys, Black Canyon Reservoir, and the Payette River. Students have easy access to natural wonders but are also close to many museums and the cosmopolitan activities of Boise.
