New Horizons Boys Ranch works hard to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Teens arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from San Diego, California, and often find it beneficial to spend time in a new environment away from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a Christian residential school with a mission for character development and family restoration. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which troubled adolescents develop better life attitudes, flourish in their belief, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each teen begins by building trust with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores build a solid work ethic and numerous other desirable character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the teen can work through the destructive choices that had held him or her back. We also use individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Students at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also uses independent study courses. All credits received transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced nature of the coursework suits our students well, permitting them to learn as they do best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key part in any worthwhile education, and we convey this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration takes place only with the full cooperation of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen on our campus. We assist with 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 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 teach values and character traits that will be profitable for your child for the rest of his or her life. Please consider looking beyond San Diego, California to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
