Our school endeavors 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 country, including from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and often find it constructive to grow in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a faith-based residential school with a heart for character growth and family renewal. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which struggling adolescents develop constructive life attitudes, flourish in their faith, find a safe and nurturing environment, and triumph over their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our gorgeous mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each boy begins by forming a relationship with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores contribute to a strong work ethic and numerous other desirable character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the teen can tackle the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also provide individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Boys at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also consists of independent study courses. All credits earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced attribute of the coursework suits our students well, permitting 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. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
True family restoration occurs only with the total commitment 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 teens using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
NHBR is a faith-based program that leads adolescents to find their place in life.
