New Horizons Boys Ranch endeavors to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Teens come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Elk River, Minnesota, and often find it constructive to grow in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
NHBR is a Christian residential school focused on character growth and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which struggling adolescents adopt constructive life attitudes, grow in their belief, find a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our gorgeous mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each boy begins by establishing trust with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores contribute to a solid work ethic and countless other attractive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can overcome the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. We also use 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 received 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 worthwhile education, and we communicate this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration occurs only with the full cooperation 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 reinforces communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
We are a Christ-centered 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 serve your child all of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Elk River, Minnesota to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
