New Horizons Boys Ranch endeavors to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by teaching discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Teens attend New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Topeka, Kansas, and often find it valuable to spend time in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a Christian residential program with a heart for character growth and family restoration. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which struggling adolescents adopt more positive life attitudes, grow in their faith, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and triumph over their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting recreation including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our gorgeous mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each child begins by forming 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 teen can tackle the destructive choices that had held him or her back. We also provide individual and group counseling to bring change in attitudes and behaviors.
Residents 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 productive education, and we convey this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration occurs only with the total commitment of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child 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.
We are a faith-based youth ranch 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 be profitable for your child all of his or her life. Please think about looking outside of Topeka, Kansas to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
