Our school endeavors to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Teens attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Duluth, Minnesota, and often find it beneficial to experience a new environment separate from local peer groups.
NHBR is a faith-based residential school with a heart for character maturity and family unity. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where struggling adolescents develop more positive life attitudes, grow 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 picturesque mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each child begins by forming a relationship with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores contribute to a solid work ethic and numerous other desirable character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the teen can overcome 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 offers independent study courses. All credits earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced attribute 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 role in any productive education, and we convey this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration happens 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 strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
We are a Christ-centered program 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 benefit your child into adulthood. Please consider looking outside of Duluth, Minnesota to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
