Our school endeavors to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from North Las Vegas, Nevada, and often find it valuable to experience a new environment separate from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a Christian residential program with a mission for character growth and family unity. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which troubled adolescents develop more positive life attitudes, flourish in their faith, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every adolescent begins by building a relationship with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores contribute to a solid work ethic and many other positive character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can overcome the destructive choices that had held him or her back. We also use individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Boys at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also consists of independent study courses. All credits received 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 role in any successful education, and we communicate this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration occurs only with the full cooperation of parents. We request parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen on our campus. We facilitate frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
We are a Christ-centered 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 serve your child for the rest of his or her life. Please consider looking beyond North Las Vegas, Nevada to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
