New Horizons Boys Ranch strives to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Overland Park, Kansas, and often find it advantageous to experience a new environment separate from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a faith-based residential program with a heart for character growth and family renewal. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where struggling adolescents adopt better life attitudes, grow in their belief, experience 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 beautiful mountainous location provides excellent opportunity for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each boy begins by building a relationship with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores foster a solid work ethic and numerous other desirable character qualities. Then, framed by a relationship with a mentor, the child can overcome the conflicts that had caused the need for intervention. We also offer individual and group counseling to bring change in attitudes and behaviors.
Students 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 attribute of the coursework suits our students well, allowing 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. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
True family restoration takes place only with the full cooperation of parents. We request parents to attend three family workshops during the year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen on our campus. We facilitate frequent contact between parents and adolescents using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
NHBR is a Christ-centered youth ranch that guides adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we believe in values and character traits that will serve your child into adulthood.
