NHBR is a Christian residential school focused on character maturity and family renewal. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which struggling adolescents develop more positive life attitudes, grow in their belief, find a safe and nurturing environment, and triumph over their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Our school endeavors to develop academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Teens attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Wichita, Kansas, and often find it beneficial to grow in a new environment away from local peer groups.
Each child begins by establishing a relationship with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores contribute to a strong work ethic and many other positive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the teen can work through the conflicts that had held him or her back. We also provide 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 earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced attribute of the coursework suits our students well, permitting 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 convey this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration takes place only with the total commitment of parents. We request parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child on our campus. We support frequent contact between parents and teens using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
We are a Christ-centered program that leads adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we believe in values and character traits that will serve your child for the rest of his or her life. Please consider looking outside of Wichita, Kansas to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
