NHBR is a Christian residential program with a heart for character development and family unity. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which struggling adolescents take on more positive life attitudes, grow in their faith, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and triumph over their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
A therapeutic boarding school that endeavors to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from California, and often find it valuable to grow in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Each adolescent begins by forming trust with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores contribute to a solid work ethic and numerous other desirable character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can work through the destructive choices that had held him or her back. We also use individual and group counseling to improve 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 nature 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 part in any productive 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 require parents to attend three family workshops during the year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child at our facility. We assist with frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which promotes communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
We are a Christ-centered youth ranch 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 benefit your child all of his or her life. Please consider looking beyond California to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
