Our therapeutic boarding school is a Christian residential program focused on character maturity and family renewal. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where troubled adolescents develop constructive life attitudes, grow in their faith, 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 gorgeous mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
New Horizons Boys Ranch strives to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Teens come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Topeka, Kansas, and often find it valuable to spend time in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Every adolescent begins by establishing a relationship with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and numerous other desirable character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the teen can overcome the destructive choices that had held him or her back. We also use individual and group counseling to bring change in 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 quality of the coursework suits our students well, allowing 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.
Lasting family restoration happens only with the full cooperation of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen at our facility. We facilitate frequent contact between parents and teens using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
NHBR is a Christ-centered youth ranch that leads adolescents to find their place in life.
