Integrated Programs

A number of integrated programs for at-risk youth are available to your son while at Rawhide. These programs give us a number of tools to help your son achieve success in his life.

Availability of integrated programs depends on a number of variables such as length of stay, type of program enrollment, progress in treatment plan, availability or recommendations from Rawhide staff or caseworker.

Individual, Group, and Family Counseling:

We offer both you and your son counseling sessions during his placement on the ranch. Counseling is also incorporated into his individualized treatment plan.

Accredited Starr Academy — Specialized Education:

The Starr Academy is fully accredited by the Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Accreditation (WRISA). WRISA is a state chapter of the National Federation of Nonpublic School State Accrediting Associations which is recognized by the College Board and the Office of Non-Public Education, an office within the U. S. Department of Education.

Starr Academy, Rawhide’s on-campus private school, offers a small classroom setting and tailored educational goals specific to your son’s needs and success.

Work Experience:

Students at Starr Academy have the opportunity to enhance their life skills with on-the-job training by being part of the Work Experience Program.

Daily Scoring and Ranking System:

While at Rawhide, your son will make daily decisions that will affect him, and when necessary, he will be held accountable for his actions. Our staff supervise daily activities and provide consistent, constructive feedback on both positive and negative behaviors.

Rawhide Equine Assisted Program or REAP:

This program pairs students and their counselors with horses to help them work through various behavioral and emotional issues.

Adventure Camp:

We offer an adventure-based team building camp to help credit-deficient teenage boys develop respect, responsibility, and self-control while canoeing the Flambeau River State Forest in northern Wisconsin. Students may earn high school credit toward graduation!

Life Skills Training:

In addition to the other training and education, Rawhide teaches critical life skills to help students’ overall success.

Community Projects:

Rawhide offers students a chance to give back to their communities and to experience the positive, rewarding feelings of helping others around them.

Church & Religious Activities:

As a faith-based organization, Rawhide encourages all young men to be actively involved in local church and youth group activities. Participation is voluntary.

Recreation & Extracurricular Activities:

Your son will have many opportunities to participate in a number of fun and healthy activities both on Rawhide’s campus as well as in the community.

Beat the Heat:

A fun opportunity for students to work with local law enforcement on a drag racing car.

Transition & Alumni Services:

Our motto is “once a Rawhide guy, always a Rawhide guy.” We are committed to supporting alumni for life.
