Our school endeavors to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Teens attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Burlington, Iowa, and often find it valuable to grow in a new environment away from local peer groups.
NHBR is a Christian residential school focused on character growth and family unity. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which troubled adolescents develop constructive life attitudes, flourish in their faith, find a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each boy begins by building trust with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores contribute to a strong work ethic and many other attractive character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can overcome the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. We also offer 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 accumulated transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced nature 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 productive education, and we convey this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration takes place only with the full cooperation of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen on our campus. We support frequent contact between parents and adolescents using tools such as letter writing, which promotes communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
We are 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 serve your child all of his or her life. Please think about looking outside of Burlington, Iowa to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
