Our school strives to develop academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Clinton, Iowa, and often find it beneficial to grow in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a faith-based residential school with a mission for character growth and family renewal. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which troubled adolescents adopt constructive life attitudes, grow in their faith, find a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each teen begins by forming trust with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores contribute to a strong work ethic and numerous other positive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the teen can tackle the destructive choices that had held him or her back. 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 uses independent study courses. All credits received 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 role in any worthwhile education, and we convey this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
True family restoration takes place only with the close involvement of parents. We request parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen at our facility. We facilitate 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 contact.
We are a Christ-centered youth ranch that leads 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 all of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Clinton, Iowa to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
