Our school strives to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Teens arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Moorhead, Minnesota, and often find it advantageous to grow in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
NHBR is a Christian residential school with a heart for character maturity and family renewal. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which struggling adolescents adopt better life attitudes, grow in their faith, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation including 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. Challenging activities and daily chores contribute to a solid work ethic and many other attractive character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can tackle the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also offer individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Residents at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also uses 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 in the way they find best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key part in any successful education, and we convey this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
True family restoration happens only with the full cooperation of parents. We request parents to attend three family workshops during the year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child on our campus. We facilitate frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
We are a faith-based youth ranch that guides adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we stand by values and character traits that will benefit your child all of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Moorhead, Minnesota to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
