We're happy you asked!  West Ridge Academy is not only a treatment center designed to help struggling teens, but is an all-encompassing program designed to heal families. We exist to create an environment of real change for future generations and to provide lasting solutions through comprehensive mental health services for youth and their families. That’s where hope begins.

West Ridge Academy, formerly the Utah Boys Ranch, began in 1964. Located in West Jordan, Utah, our organization quickly became recognized for the positive effects its program had on young men and young women who were struggling academically, emotionally, and socially. Today, we have helped heal more than 25,000 families, and have expanded our services to include outpatient therapy, day treatment, and separate residential campuses for boys and girls. Today, we continue to bring hope and healing to families across the world.
