New Horizons Boys Ranch strives to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Teens attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Cedar Falls, Iowa, and often find it valuable to grow in a new environment away from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a Christian residential school with a heart for character development and family renewal. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which troubled adolescents adopt better life attitudes, grow in their belief, find a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each child begins by establishing trust with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and numerous other attractive character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the teen can tackle the conflicts that had held him or her back. We also use individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Students 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 attribute 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 full cooperation 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 adolescents using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
NHBR is a faith-based youth ranch that leads 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 all of his or her life. Please consider looking outside of Cedar Falls, Iowa to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
