New Horizons Boys Ranch is a faith-based residential school focused on character development and family unity. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment where struggling adolescents adopt constructive life attitudes, grow in their belief, find a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We balance 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 strives to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Connecticut, and often find it advantageous to grow in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Every child begins by establishing a relationship with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores foster a solid work ethic and countless other attractive character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the teen can tackle the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. 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 received transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced nature 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 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 takes place only with the total commitment of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops during the year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen at our facility. We support 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 contact.
NHBR is a Christ-centered program that guides adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we teach values and character traits that will serve your child into adulthood. Please think about looking beyond Connecticut to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
