New Horizons Boys Ranch works hard to develop academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Teens come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Ankeny, Iowa, and often find it valuable to grow in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a Christian residential school with a heart for character growth and family renewal. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like environment where troubled adolescents adopt constructive life attitudes, grow in their belief, find a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our gorgeous mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each teen begins by building a relationship with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores contribute to a strong work ethic and many other positive character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can overcome the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. We also provide individual and group counseling to bring change in attitudes and behaviors.
Students 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 quality of the coursework suits our students well, permitting 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 worthwhile education, and we communicate this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
True family restoration happens only with the close involvement of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child at our facility. We assist with frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
NHBR is a Christ-centered program 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 be profitable for your child all of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Ankeny, Iowa to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
