Our therapeutic boarding school is a Christian residential program with a mission for character growth and family renewal. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which troubled adolescents adopt more positive life attitudes, grow in their faith, experience 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 gorgeous mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Our school works hard to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Teens arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Scottsdale, Arizona, and often find it advantageous to grow in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
Each child begins by forming trust with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and many other positive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can work through the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also provide individual and group counseling to bring change in attitudes and behaviors.
Residents at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also consists of independent study courses. All credits accumulated transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced attribute 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 role in any successful education, and we communicate this in our classroom. In addition, 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 per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen on our campus. We assist with frequent contact between parents and teens using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
We are a faith-based program that leads adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we teach values and character traits that will benefit your child into adulthood. Please consider looking beyond Scottsdale, Arizona to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
