Our school works hard to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Newton, Iowa, and often find it valuable to grow in a new environment away from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a Christian residential program focused on character development and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment where struggling adolescents take on constructive life attitudes, flourish in their belief, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and triumph over 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.
Every boy begins by building trust with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores foster a solid work ethic and many other positive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the child can work through the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. We also offer 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 uses independent study courses. All credits earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced attribute 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 worthwhile education, and we communicate this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration takes place only with the total commitment of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops per 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 interaction.
We are a faith-based program that guides adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we believe in values and character traits that will benefit your child all of his or her life. Please consider looking beyond Newton, Iowa to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
