New Horizons Boys Ranch endeavors to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Teens arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Lynnwood, Washington, and often find it valuable to spend time in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
NHBR is a faith-based residential program with a mission for character maturity and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which troubled adolescents adopt better life attitudes, grow in their faith, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with inviting recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our gorgeous mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each boy begins by establishing trust with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores build a solid work ethic and many other desirable character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the teen can tackle the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also provide 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 attribute 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 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.
Lasting family restoration happens only with the full cooperation of parents. We request parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child at our facility. We assist with frequent contact between parents and adolescents using tools such as letter writing, which promotes communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
NHBR is a Christ-centered program that leads 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 benefit your child into adulthood. Please think about looking beyond Lynnwood, Washington to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.

|Therapeutic boarding schools in Lynnwood, Washington: |
Lynnwood is a city in Snohomish County, Washington, United States. The population was 35,836 at the 2010 census, making it the fourth largest in Snohomish County and twenty-ninth largest in Washington State. The city is a mix of urban, suburban, small city, crossroads and bedroom community to many professionals who work in Seattle. Lynnwood is known to be the “hub city” of south Snohomish County because of all the retail shopping. Straddling the junction between Interstate 5 and the north end of Interstate 405 in Washington, it is the final tangle of population on the north end of “greater Seattle” before one continues on to other places: Everett, Bellingham, or Vancouver, BC. Its climate is wet and cool, wetter than that of Seattle. The center of the town at 44th Avenue West and 196th Southwest has the usual American panoply of small businesses, strip malls, and retail stores. Outside the commercial center of Lynnwood, to the east and north, lie Alderwood Mall, houses, and portions of the green belt.
