Our therapeutic boarding school is a Christian residential school focused on character maturity and family unity. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which struggling adolescents adopt constructive life attitudes, grow in their faith, find a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our gorgeous 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 teaching discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Van Nuys, California, and often find it beneficial to grow in a new environment away from local peer groups.
Each adolescent begins by establishing trust with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores build a solid work ethic and many other desirable character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can overcome the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. We also offer 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 earned 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.
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 teen on our campus. 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 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 all of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Van Nuys, California to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
