Our school endeavors to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Brownsville, Texas, and often find it constructive to grow in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a faith-based residential program with a mission for character growth and family unity. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where struggling adolescents adopt more positive life attitudes, grow in their faith, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each boy begins by forming a relationship with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores contribute to a strong work ethic and many other attractive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the teen can overcome the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. We also use individual and group counseling to bring change in attitudes and behaviors.
Boys at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also offers independent study courses. All credits earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality 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 role in any successful education, and we convey this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration occurs only with the close involvement of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops during the year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen at our facility. We assist with 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 interaction.
We are a faith-based program 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 all of his or her life. Please consider looking beyond Brownsville, Texas to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
