Our therapeutic boarding school is a faith-based residential school with a mission for character development and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which troubled adolescents develop more positive life attitudes, flourish in their belief, find a safe and nurturing environment, and triumph over their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
A therapeutic boarding school that endeavors to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Teens attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from West Virginia, and often find it advantageous to grow in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Each boy begins by building trust with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores contribute to a solid work ethic and many other positive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can work through the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also use 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 offers independent study courses. All credits received transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced attribute 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 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.
True family restoration takes place only with the full cooperation of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child on our campus. We assist with 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 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 serve your child into adulthood. Please think about looking outside of West Virginia to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
