Our school strives to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Teens come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Oceanside, California, and often find it advantageous to spend time in a new environment away from local peer groups.
NHBR is a Christian residential school with a mission for character growth and family renewal. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like environment where struggling adolescents adopt constructive life attitudes, flourish in their belief, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every teen begins by forming trust with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and countless other positive character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the child can overcome the destructive choices 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 offers 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 role in any productive education, and we communicate this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration happens only with the total commitment of parents. We ask 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 adolescents using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
We are a Christ-centered youth ranch that leads adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we teach values and character traits that will serve your child all of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Oceanside, California to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
