New Horizons Boys Ranch is a Christian residential school focused on character development and family renewal. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which troubled adolescents develop better life attitudes, grow in their belief, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
A therapeutic boarding school that works hard to develop academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Teens attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Alaska, and often find it beneficial to experience a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Each boy begins by building a relationship with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores build a solid work ethic and numerous other attractive character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the child can tackle the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. We also offer individual and group counseling to bring change in attitudes and behaviors.
Boys 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 nature 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 productive education, and we communicate this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration occurs only with the total commitment of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child at our facility. 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.
NHBR is 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 think about looking beyond Alaska to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
