New Horizons Boys Ranch strives to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Teens arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Chicago Heights, Illinois, and often find it beneficial to spend time in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
NHBR is a Christian residential school with a heart for character maturity and family unity. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which troubled adolescents adopt constructive life attitudes, flourish in their faith, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every teen begins by building trust with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores contribute to a solid work ethic and numerous other desirable character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the teen can tackle the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. 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 consists of independent study courses. All credits earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced nature of the coursework suits our students well, permitting 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 worthwhile education, and we communicate this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
True family restoration happens 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 on our campus. We support frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
We are a faith-based youth ranch that guides adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we teach values and character traits that will be profitable for your child into adulthood. Please consider looking outside of Chicago Heights, Illinois to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
