Our Mission

Building Brighter Tomorrows for the Boys of Today

Core Values

We are a one-of-a-kind residential setting with a fully accredited school in beautiful Emmett, Idaho. Our world-renowned academic and therapeutic programs serve students and families with a wide range of therapeutic needs. Each staff member plays an important role in our students’ success as we strive to help our boys reach their full potential. Our staff does this by living out our outward-minded core values.

At Cherry Gulch Inc. we value:


We provide service excellence in our own departments, knowing the performance of each department directly impacts the organization and our ability to serve our students well.


Our staff cares deeply about our students and each other. We look after our students like they are our own children, and we treat our co-workers like family.


We have long range vision. We know that how we serve, treat and respond to our students today will affect who they are and how they think of themselves in the future. We also know that our successes don’t happen by accident; we take the necessary time today to plan and prepare for our students’ future needs.


We ask our staff to believe in our students, in co-workers, and in our program.We believe our students are bright and talented and that they have what it takes to work through their struggles on their journey. We believe that our co-workers always have the best intentions in mind. We believe our program is the best of its kind and is just what our students need to feel loved and successful.
