Our school strives to promote 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 Arlington, Texas, and often find it valuable to spend time in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a Christian residential program focused on character development and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which struggling adolescents adopt more positive life attitudes, grow in their belief, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our gorgeous mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each boy begins by establishing a relationship with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores build a solid work ethic and many other desirable character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the child can overcome the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also use individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Residents 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, 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. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration takes place only with the total commitment of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen at our facility. We support frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces 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, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we believe in values and character traits that will benefit your child for the rest of his or her life. Please think about looking outside of Arlington, Texas to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
