New Horizons Boys Ranch is a faith-based residential school with a heart for character maturity and family renewal. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which struggling adolescents develop more positive life attitudes, flourish in their belief, find a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
A therapeutic boarding school that endeavors to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Teens attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Iowa, and often find it valuable to spend time in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Every child begins by establishing a relationship with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and many other attractive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can overcome the conflicts that had held him or her back. We also offer individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Boys at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also offers independent study courses. All credits received transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality 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 role 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 full cooperation 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 contact.
We are a faith-based program that leads adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we stand by values and character traits that will serve your child for the rest of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Iowa to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.

|Therapeutic boarding schools for troubled boys in Iowa: |
Iowa is a state located in the Midwestern United States, an area often referred to as the “American Heartland”. It derives its name from the Ioway people, one of the many American Indian tribes that occupied the state at the time of European exploration. Iowa was a part of the French colony of New France. After the Louisiana Purchase, settlers laid the foundation for an agriculture-based economy in the heart of the Corn Belt. Iowa is often known as the “Food Capital of the World”. However, Iowa’s economy, culture, and landscape are diverse.
