Our school works hard to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Norfolk, Nebraska, and often find it constructive to grow in a new environment away from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a Christian residential program with a heart for character growth and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where struggling adolescents develop constructive life attitudes, flourish in their faith, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every teen begins by forming a relationship with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores contribute to a strong work ethic and many other attractive character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the child can work through 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 consists of independent study courses. All credits accumulated transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality 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 role in any productive education, and we communicate this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine 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 child on our campus. We facilitate frequent contact between parents and teens using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
NHBR is a Christ-centered youth ranch 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 serve your child into adulthood. Please consider looking outside of Norfolk, Nebraska to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
