Our school endeavors to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Cedar Park, Texas, and often find it valuable to grow in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a faith-based residential program with a heart for character development and family unity. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which struggling adolescents adopt better life attitudes, grow in their faith, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every adolescent begins by establishing a relationship with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores build a solid work ethic and numerous other attractive character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can tackle the destructive choices 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 uses independent study courses. All credits earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality of the coursework suits our students well, making it possible for them to learn in the way they find 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.
True family restoration occurs only with the full cooperation 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 reinforces communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
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 stand by values and character traits that will benefit your child all of his or her life. Please consider looking beyond Cedar Park, Texas to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
