New Horizons Boys Ranch works hard to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Springfield, Missouri, and often find it constructive to spend time in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a faith-based residential school focused on character development and family unity. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment where struggling adolescents take on constructive life attitudes, flourish in their faith, 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 gorgeous mountainous location has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every child begins by building a relationship with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and many other desirable character qualities. Then, supported by a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can work through the destructive choices that had caused the need for intervention. We also provide 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 earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced quality 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 worthwhile education, and we communicate this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration takes place only with the full cooperation of parents. We request parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen at our facility. We assist with frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and strengthens relationships without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
NHBR is a Christ-centered program 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 for the rest of his or her life. Please consider looking beyond Springfield, Missouri to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
