Triangle Cross Family Ranch serves young men between the ages of 12-17.
To ensure that our Bunkhouse is a safe environment for your son, we do not accept boys who are a danger to themselves, others, our livestock, or our property. We determine the eligibility of each child who comes to our ranch during the initial phone interview, at which time we review the boy’s behavioral history and his mental disposition.
Applications are processed year round.
It could happen quickly depending on how long it takes to fill out the application, and send your deposit to reserve your son's space. Usually three days to a week.
The length of time we recommend will be determined by the needs of each child and is typically assessed during his 30 day probationary period. We find that most boys benefit from a minimum of 90 days. Triangle Cross Family Ranch also has an 18 month guarantee: if your son resumes negative behavior after an 18 month stay at our ranch, we will take him back into our program for free.
Not necessarily: academic enrollment is based upon the length of stay and the wishes of each boy’s parent(s).
We recommend that the parents enroll their child in the Our Lady of the Rosary home study program. Our Lady of the Rosary is a correspondence school that offers complete teacher services, texts, lesson plans, workbooks, tests, grading and full diplomas. We can also accommodate any other pre-arranged curriculum. Consult our “Parent Handbook” for more information.
Although we are Roman Catholic, we will accept boys of any other creed, color, nationality, or religion.
