Our school endeavors to develop academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and coaching them to rebuild relationships. Teens come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from Oakland, California, and often find it advantageous to experience a new environment away from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a Christian residential program with a mission for character maturity and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere in which troubled adolescents adopt more positive life attitudes, flourish in their faith, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and triumph over their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with inviting recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each teen begins by establishing trust with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and countless other attractive character qualities. Then, framed by 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 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 convey 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 require parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen on our campus. We support 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.
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 think about looking beyond Oakland, California to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
