Our school endeavors to develop academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Teens arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Forest Lake, Minnesota, and often find it advantageous to experience a new environment separate from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a faith-based residential school with a mission for character maturity and family renewal. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like environment where troubled adolescents take on more positive life attitudes, flourish in their faith, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and triumph over their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our gorgeous mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each child begins by building trust with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores foster a solid work ethic and countless other positive character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the child can tackle the conflicts that had held him or her back. We also offer individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Residents 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 quality 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 productive education, and we communicate this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration occurs only with the full cooperation of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen on our campus. We assist with frequent contact between parents and teens using tools such as letter writing, which promotes communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
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 believe in values and character traits that will serve your child for the rest of his or her life. Please think about looking outside of Forest Lake, Minnesota to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
