New Horizons Boys Ranch endeavors to promote 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 Lakeville, Minnesota, and often find it constructive to spend time in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a faith-based residential school with a heart for character development and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which struggling adolescents take on constructive life attitudes, grow in their faith, find a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our gorgeous mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every adolescent begins by forming trust with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and countless other desirable character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the child can overcome the conflicts that had held him or her back. 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, permitting 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.
True family restoration happens only with the close involvement of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen at our facility. We facilitate 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 faith-based 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 outside of Lakeville, Minnesota to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
