Our school endeavors to develop academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Teens attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Hastings, Minnesota, and often find it advantageous to experience a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a faith-based residential program with a heart for character maturity and family restoration. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like environment where troubled adolescents develop more positive life attitudes, flourish in their belief, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every boy begins by forming a relationship with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and countless other desirable character qualities. Then, in context of 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 nature 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. In addition, 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 child at our facility. We facilitate frequent contact between parents and adolescents using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
We are a faith-based program that leads adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we stand by values and character traits that will be profitable for your child all of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Hastings, Minnesota to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
