NHBR is a faith-based residential program with a heart for character maturity and family restoration. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like environment where troubled adolescents adopt more positive life attitudes, flourish in their faith, find a safe and nurturing environment, and triumph over their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting 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 develop academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Teens arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Virginia, 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. Strenuous activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and countless other positive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the child can work through the conflicts that had held him or her back. We also use 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 accumulated transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced attribute of the coursework suits our students well, allowing them to learn as they do 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.
True family restoration takes place only with the close involvement of parents. We request parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child at our facility. We support frequent contact between parents and teens using tools such as letter writing, which promotes communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
NHBR is a faith-based program that leads adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we believe in values and character traits that will serve your child into adulthood. Please consider looking beyond Virginia to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
