New Horizons Boys Ranch endeavors to promote academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and helping them to rebuild relationships. Teens come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from around the country, including from Wichita, Kansas, and often find it beneficial to spend time in a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Our therapeutic boarding school is a faith-based residential program with a mission for character development and family unity. We provide treatment to 20 boys in a home-like environment where struggling adolescents take on better life attitudes, grow in their faith, live in a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with inviting recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our beautiful mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Each adolescent begins by establishing trust with an adult mentor. Engaging activities and daily chores foster a strong work ethic and many other desirable character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the child can work through the conflicts that had held him or her back. We also use 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 offers independent study courses. All credits earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced attribute 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 role in any worthwhile education, and we convey this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Lasting family restoration occurs only with the close involvement of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child at our facility. We support frequent contact between parents and adolescents using tools such as letter writing, which reinforces communication and strengthens relationships 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, therapy, hard work and plenty of play, we believe in values and character traits that will serve your child all of his or her life. Please consider looking beyond Wichita, Kansas to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
