Our school endeavors to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from South San Francisco, California, and often find it valuable to grow in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a Christian residential school with a heart for character maturity and family unity. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where troubled adolescents adopt more positive life attitudes, grow in their belief, find a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each teen begins by forming a relationship with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores build a solid work ethic and countless other attractive character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the child can work through the destructive choices that had held him or her back. We also provide 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 accumulated transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality 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 part in any productive education, and we communicate this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration happens only with the close involvement of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops during the year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child at our facility. 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 youth ranch that guides adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we stand by values and character traits that will serve your child into adulthood. Please consider looking beyond South San Francisco, California to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
