New Horizons Boys Ranch endeavors to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Teens come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Laredo, Texas, and often find it advantageous to experience a new environment separate from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a faith-based residential school with a heart for character growth and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which troubled adolescents adopt better life attitudes, flourish in their faith, live in 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 picturesque mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each child begins by building trust with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores foster a strong work ethic and many other attractive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can tackle the destructive choices that had held him or her back. We also use individual and group counseling to bring change in attitudes and behaviors.
Residents 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 nature of the coursework suits our students well, permitting them to learn as they do best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key part in any worthwhile education, and we convey this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration happens only with the full cooperation of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops during the year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen at our facility. We facilitate frequent contact between parents and teens using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
NHBR is a Christ-centered program that guides adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we teach values and character traits that will serve your child into adulthood. Please consider looking outside of Laredo, Texas to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
