New Horizons Boys Ranch strives to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Teens arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Bakersfield, California, and often find it advantageous to grow in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a Christian residential program with a heart for character development and family restoration. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which struggling adolescents take on more positive life attitudes, flourish in their belief, find a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with inviting recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our gorgeous mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each adolescent begins by building a relationship with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores foster a strong work ethic and numerous other desirable character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can overcome the destructive choices that had held him or her back. We also provide individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Residents 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 nature 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 worthwhile education, and we convey this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration takes place only with the total commitment of parents. We request parents to attend three family workshops during the year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child on our campus. We facilitate 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 interaction.
We are a faith-based youth ranch that guides 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 for the rest of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Bakersfield, California to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
