About Our School
Cherry Gulch is a small, relational, private owner-operated, award-winning, ranch-style residential setting. Our accredited school is designed specifically for 5th through 9th grade boys. Our goal is to provide early intervention and prevention to help these boys reach their full potential and become well-rounded prosocial young men. We build strong relationships and 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.
We provide a unique opportunity where every experience is educational and therapeutic in a fun and purposeful environment. We are dedicated to providing outstanding services to students and their families in the context of a safe and supportive environment. Our talented Master’s level therapists work with our students, using research-supported approaches to provide world class treatment for the individuals we serve. Our talented professionals bring the needed learning tools to the young men and families with whom we work. We develop the educational scaffolding essential to produce thoughtful, prepared, and confident young men.
