Intake Process

Placement in our program is the culmination of a screening process that includes the following steps:

boys home


Phone call from family. An initial assessment (Student Profile) is done to determine, in general, if the proposed resident meets the entrance criteria.

Application Review

Upon receiving a completed Student Profile, it is reviewed here to determine if the needs of the prospective resident match-up well with what we have to offer as a program.

This review evaluates the presented needs from an educational, behavioral, emotional, and social, aspect.

Phone Interview

As a follow-up to reviewing the Student Profile, a telephone interview is conducted, where clarification and further discussion takes place in order to explore, in greater detail, the circumstances and events leading up to requesting placement. It is at the conclusion of this interview that a decision is made as to whether the family will be accepted into the program. If it is apparent that the needs and our program are not a good match-up, a referral will be made to help find a program that better addresses the needs of the family.

New Horizons Boys Ranch is not equipped to take students with tendencies toward suicide, or who have a history of arson, violent behavior, or perpetrating sexual abuse.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact Rosie Harrell – Admissions Director or Tom Harrell, Program Director. Because of the nature of our program, we do not arrange tours or visits until we have progressed through the above stated process.

An incomplete application package will delay the process. Please be sure to include all requested information.

Once accepted the Enrollment Agreement / Financial Policy may be completed and submitted to our office.
