Our school strives to develop academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from La Habra, California, and often find it valuable to experience a new environment separate from local peer groups.
NHBR is a faith-based residential school with a mission for character maturity and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment where troubled adolescents take on better life attitudes, grow in their faith, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We balance 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 adolescent begins by establishing trust with an adult mentor. Engaging 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 child can tackle the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. We also provide individual and group counseling to bring change in attitudes and behaviors.
Boys at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also consists of independent study courses. All credits accumulated transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality of the coursework suits our students well, making it possible for them to learn as they do best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key role in any successful education, and we communicate this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
True family restoration happens only with the total commitment of parents. We require 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 strengthens communication and relationship building 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 be profitable for your child all of his or her life. Please think about looking outside of La Habra, California to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
