Petty Creek Ranch has an open enrollment policy and accepts admissions year-round. Our admission process requires us to conduct an initial phone interview to see if your son would be a good fit for our program. Below is an outline of the admission procedure:
Call our admission line at (406) 722-3226 to get more information about Petty Creek Ranch and to see if your son would be a good fit for our program. You can also email us with information regarding your son’s needs and behavioral history and to schedule a later time for the phone interview.
At Petty Creek Ranch we try to make all steps as easy as possible. After the phone interview and determining that your son would benefit from our program, we will email, mail, or fax you a copy of our admission application (email transmission is preferred if you require immediate enrollment).
After completion of the application and fee, you may begin making travel arrangements to bring your son to Petty Creek Ranch. Although we are able to receive clients 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, we ask that you keep us informed of travel arrangements and expected placement time frames.
The cost of care at Petty Creek Ranch is $5,000 a month with a non-refundable $2,500 admission fee, which pays for necessary outdoor equipment and initial intake assessments.
