Our therapeutic boarding school is a Christian residential program with a heart for character maturity and family restoration. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where troubled adolescents adopt better life attitudes, flourish in their belief, find a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
New Horizons Boys Ranch works hard to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Brownsville, Texas, and often find it constructive to grow in a new environment away from local peer groups.
Every teen begins by forming a relationship with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores foster a strong work ethic and numerous other desirable character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the child can overcome the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also offer individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Boys 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 nature of the coursework suits our students well, making it possible for them to learn as they do best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key part in any productive education, and we communicate this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration happens only with the close involvement of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen on our campus. We support frequent contact between parents and adolescents using tools such as letter writing, which promotes communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
NHBR is a faith-based program that leads adolescents to find their place in life.
