Our therapeutic boarding school is a faith-based residential school with a mission for character development and family restoration. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which troubled adolescents develop more positive life attitudes, flourish in their faith, find a safe and nurturing environment, and triumph over their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
New Horizons Boys Ranch endeavors to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Boise, Idaho, and often find it beneficial to experience a new environment away from local peer groups.
Each boy begins by forming trust with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores build a solid work ethic and numerous other positive character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the teen can work through the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also offer individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Students at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also uses independent study courses. All credits received transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced attribute of the coursework suits our students well, making it possible for them to learn in the way they find best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key role in any productive education, and we communicate this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration occurs only with the close involvement of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child at our facility. We assist with frequent contact between parents and adolescents using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
We are a Christ-centered program that guides adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we stand by values and character traits that will be profitable for your child all of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Boise, Idaho to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
