NHBR is a faith-based residential school with a heart for character maturity and family renewal. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like environment where struggling adolescents develop constructive life attitudes, grow in their faith, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
A therapeutic boarding school that endeavors to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Teens attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Utah, and often find it advantageous to grow in a new environment away from local peer groups.
Each boy begins by establishing a relationship with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and many other desirable 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 uses independent study courses. All credits earned 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 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.
True family restoration occurs only with the full cooperation of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child on our campus. We facilitate frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
We are a Christ-centered youth ranch that guides adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we teach values and character traits that will be profitable for your child into adulthood. Please consider looking outside of Utah to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.

|Therapeutic boarding schools for troubled boys in Utah: |
Utah is a state in the Western United States. It was the 45th state to join the Union, on January 4, 1896. Utah is the 13th most extensive, the 34th most populous, and the 10th least densely populated of the 50 United States. Approximately 80% of Utah’s 2,817,222 people live along the Wasatch Front, centering on Salt Lake City. This leaves vast expanses of the state nearly uninhabited, making the population the sixth most urbanized in the U.S. The name “Utah” is derived from the name of the Ute tribe and means “people of the mountains” in the Ute language. Utah is bordered by Arizona on the south, Colorado on the east, Wyoming on the northeast, Idaho on the north and Nevada on the west. It also touches a corner of New Mexico.
