Our school strives to develop academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Teens come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Dubuque, Iowa, 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 mission for character growth and family unity. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment where troubled adolescents adopt better life attitudes, flourish in their faith, find a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every teen begins by forming a relationship with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores foster a strong work ethic and countless other attractive character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the child can overcome the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also offer 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 offers independent study courses. All credits received transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality of the coursework suits our students well, allowing 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 successful 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 close involvement of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops during the year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen at our facility. We assist with 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 leads adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we teach values and character traits that will serve your child all of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Dubuque, Iowa to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
