Our school works hard to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Long Beach, California, and often find it valuable to grow in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a Christian residential school focused on character maturity and family renewal. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where troubled adolescents adopt more positive life attitudes, grow 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 gorgeous mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each child begins by establishing a relationship with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores foster a solid work ethic and numerous other attractive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the child can tackle the destructive choices that had held him or her back. We also offer 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 accumulated transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced nature of the coursework suits our students well, making it possible for 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 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 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 support frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
NHBR is a faith-based program that leads adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we teach values and character traits that will be profitable for your child all of his or her life. Please consider looking outside of Long Beach, California to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
