Our therapeutic boarding school is a faith-based residential program focused on character development and family renewal. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where struggling adolescents develop constructive life attitudes, flourish in their belief, find a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with inviting recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
New Horizons Boys Ranch strives to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Burbank, California, and often find it beneficial to grow in a new environment away from local peer groups.
Each boy begins by building trust with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores contribute to a strong work ethic and numerous other attractive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can tackle the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. We also use 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 accumulated transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality of the coursework suits our students well, allowing them to learn in the way they find best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key part in any worthwhile education, and we communicate this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration happens only with the close involvement of parents. We request parents to attend three family workshops during the year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child at our facility. We support frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
NHBR is a faith-based program that guides adolescents to find their place in life.
