New Horizons Boys Ranch works hard to encourage 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 Madison, Wisconsin, and often find it constructive to spend time in a new environment away from local peer groups.
NHBR is a faith-based residential school focused on character development and family renewal. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which struggling adolescents take on better life attitudes, grow in their belief, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each child begins by forming trust with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores contribute to a solid work ethic and many other desirable character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can overcome the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also use 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 earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced nature of the coursework suits our students well, allowing 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 convey this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
True family restoration takes place only with the total commitment of parents. We request parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen at our facility. We assist with frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which promotes communication and strengthens relationships 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 for the rest of his or her life. Please consider looking beyond Madison, Wisconsin to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
