Our school works hard to develop academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Bellingham, Washington, and often find it valuable to experience a new environment separate from local peer groups.
NHBR is a Christian residential program with a mission for character development and family renewal. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which troubled adolescents take on constructive life attitudes, grow in their belief, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each boy begins by establishing trust with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and many other desirable character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the child can tackle the destructive choices that had held him or her back. 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 received transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality of the coursework suits our students well, allowing 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. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration takes place only with the close involvement of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops during the year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child on our campus. We support frequent contact between parents and teens using tools such as letter writing, which promotes communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
NHBR is a Christ-centered program that guides adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we stand by values and character traits that will benefit your child into adulthood. Please think about looking outside of Bellingham, Washington to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
