Our school works hard to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Teens arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Shreveport, Louisiana, and often find it beneficial to grow in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a Christian residential school with a heart for character development and family unity. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where struggling adolescents adopt constructive life attitudes, grow in their faith, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and overcome 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 child begins by establishing trust with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores foster a solid work ethic and countless other desirable character qualities. Then, in context of 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.
Boys at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also offers independent study courses. All credits accumulated transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality of the coursework suits our students well, permitting them to learn in the way they find best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key role in any worthwhile education, and we communicate this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration takes place 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 teen on our campus. We support frequent contact between parents and teens using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face interaction.
NHBR is a faith-based program that leads 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 for the rest of his or her life. Please think about looking beyond Shreveport, Louisiana to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
