Our school strives to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the country, including from St. Louis, Missouri, and often find it beneficial to spend time in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
NHBR is a Christian residential school with a mission for character development and family renewal. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment where troubled adolescents take on more positive life attitudes, flourish in their faith, find 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 has much to offer in backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every boy begins by building trust with an adult mentor. Strenuous 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 tackle the conflicts that had held him or her back. We also provide individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Boys at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also offers independent study courses. All credits received transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced attribute 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 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 occurs 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 at our facility. We support frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
NHBR is a Christ-centered youth ranch that leads 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 benefit your child for the rest of his or her life. Please think about looking outside of St. Louis, Missouri to see how our caring program can bring restoration to your family.
