Our school works hard to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Mankato, Minnesota, and often find it valuable to grow in a new environment away from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a Christian residential school with a mission for character maturity and family unity. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which troubled adolescents take on more positive life attitudes, grow in their belief, find a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each boy begins by establishing a relationship with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores build a solid work ethic and countless other positive character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent 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.
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, making it possible for them to learn as they do best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key part in any productive education, and we convey this in our classroom. Additionally, 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 during the 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 interaction.
NHBR is a faith-based youth ranch 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 all of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Mankato, Minnesota to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
