|Description:||A Team of Youth Development Specialists with a lifetime of experience helping troubled teens. |
Eagle Ranch Academy was founded by two successful football coaches that have spent a lifetime helping talented but often troubled teens develop attitudes and strategies for maximizing their abilities and achieving great success in their lives
Paul Arslanian (Professional & College Coach) is the Executive Director of ERA, and runs the day to day operations along with hands on teaching and mentoring of the Students.
Dave Arslanian (former Head Coach Snow College, Weber State, and Utah State University) is the Director of Admissions & Placement for the Ranch and is closely involved with the Parents and Students as they progress through the program and beyond.
A Team of highly trained specialists to affect mighty change in a struggling teen:
Dave Arslanian says - "As a former head coach, I know the value of having a good team around you. We have assembled an outstanding team of Youth Development Professionals to help us in this important endeavor. As Coaches, we have worked with talented, gifted, but sometimes troubled teens; and through the years we became acutely aware of the need for intervention programs that can redirect and in some cases save a life. While Parents feel powerless, good young people head down the wrong path with little to stop them; while peer pressure or poor choices push them further away from a healthy, productive, and fulfilling life. Our Goal is simply stated - help Parents help their Children get their lives on track."

|Student Profile:||The Problem |
Problems emerging for your Son or Daughter may include:
- Poor or Failing Grades
- Negative Peer Group
- Avoidance / Running Away
- Angry & Defiant
- Sullen & Distant
- Drug Use
- Out of Control Behavior
- Divorce / Adoptive Issues
- Medically Diagnosed Issues
(ADDA, ADHD, Addictions, Weight Control, Teen Depression, etc.)
Whether your Son or Daughter has one or more of the problems listed, whether he or she is falling short of his/her true potential, or whether he or she is piling one bad decision onto the next - These problems are very real, they are becoming life altering, and can very quickly become life threatening.
Too often Parents feel powerless, while good young people head down the wrong path with little to stop them; while peer pressure or poor choices push them further away from a healthy, productive, and fulfilling life.
Our Team of Specialists work with the Student and Parent to help solve these problems. Our Goal is to solve these problems, and then help the Student understand how to maximize their talents in a healthy, productive manner, and once again begin to enjoy their youth with family and friends.
Independent Educational Plans are at the heart of the success of our academic program.
Eagle Ranch Academy uses powerful cutting Virtual High School software called 3DLearn as part of our Academic program. Through this system and our state of the art computer labs students receive independent educational plans unique to the student's needs to obtain a High School Diploma.
ERA's Virtual High School allows students to excel in any course and quickly make up lost time in school due to previous bad behavior. Most students upon graduating from ERA are either caught up with their home class or exceed their home class in curriculum.
Along with our Virtual High School students at ERA are involved in several educational outings that include visiting the Grand Canyon, other nearby national monuments, as well as educational service projects.
Credits obtained through our Virtual High School are transferable to most Universities and Colleges across the country. Scholarships are available for students continuing on from ERA to College.
|Activities:||Community service and other recreational activities|
|Counseling:||Many programs operate on the premise that if the child is doing well behaviorally in the program that the child will continue to behave upon returning home. This is a fallacy that Eagle Ranch Academy does not follow.|
At Eagle Ranch Academy our highly trained clinical team consistently tests and challenges students to determine whether the program is effecting long term behavioral change. This is done through a variety of methods all of which are based on the students free agency or ability to make choices without being manipulated into change.
Allowing students to make choices while in the program leads to true internal change that is long lasting and will carry on upon returning home to family. Our goal is to return your child as you remember them before they took a turn down difficult paths. Not only to return them as you remember them, but with added strength through our Life Skills Coaching program.
|Campus:||The ERA Campus (the Residential School Campus) is located on 2½ acres in St. George, Utah. It is a modern campus with over 17,000 square feet of building facilities consisting of an Administrative/Counseling/Medical/Cafeteria building, an Academic/Computer Lab/Life Skills building, and 3 separate Cottages for Student Living Quarters. The Campus was developed, built, and owned by the Woodbury Corporation, specifically for the State of Utah as a Youth Residential Alcohol & Drug Rehabilitation Program. ERA purchased the property, and with minor renovations created a state of the art Residential Youth Development School.|
ERA utilizes the "Fitness of the Whole" approach with mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual training for all Students. Modern facilities are available on Campus, while the Ranch also plays an important role in this approach.

The Ranch is located 35 minutes west of St. George, Utah on a beautiful, secure 500 acre working Ranch; and is perfectly situated to provide for the structured and focused environment necessary for the development of important work ethic and related life skills taught by ERA.
The Ranch borders the picturesque Dixie National Forest, and has a unique history. It was owned by Howard Hughes (The Aviator/Desert Inn Resort) and has its own private landing strip (soon to be updated). His personal Ranch House is used by the property Caretaker and Ranch Foreman, but was burned in a recent fire and rehabbing it will be a special work project by ERA students.
The current owners (DI Ranch LLC) bought the property from Hyrum Smith (owner/founder of Franklin Planners), who built a beautiful 4000 Sq. Ft. Lodge that will house Eagle Ranch Academy Students when they are on the Ranch for work projects, special overnight Group Therapy sessions, or "Reward Trips" for fun and relaxation for deserving Students.
The Lake is only ¼ mile from the Lodge, and is used for BBQs, camping, swimming, kayaking, and rafting as Students qualify for participation in these activities.
|Length of Stay:||6 to 9 months|
