We are a private pay facility with a monthly tuition cost to families that varies depending on the how much scholarship funding is needed.

Fees range from $3500 per month up to the full cost of care which is approximately $7000 per month. Hilltop Ranch’s Board of Directors and Staff work diligently in fundraising in order to make residency affordable to families. We are extremely thankful to the generous donors and foundations that support us!

If you answered “no” to all the questions above and can cover the cost of care, please proceed to the application here.
