Students with special education needs will attend some or all of their classes at the Najim High School located on the Hill Country Youth Ranch campus.

Q: How much does it cost to live at EH?

A: There is a one-time security deposit of $150 due upon move in. Like a security deposit anywhere else, this fee is meant to cover damages or cleaning fees. If no damages or cleaning is required upon exit from the program, the security deposit will be returned. Enhanced Horizons also requires residents to pay “cost of living” which is a fee of $100 due the 1st of every month. 16 hours per month of supervised volunteer work can supplement the $100 cost of living fee. Enhanced Horizons provides transportation to and from locations within 15 miles of our facility. Trips to job interviews, church, medical, and case management appointments are free of charge. All other trips require a shuttle voucher. Vouchers can be purchased at $15, $25, or $50.

Q: What should I bring?

A: Enhanced Horizons residential services provide fully furnished bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms and a shared kitchen, living room, and laundry room. If you already have your own dishes, blankets, towels, etc. and décor you are welcome to bring them. EH can provide emergency hygiene items, but does not provide these long term. Cleaning supplies, with the exception of paper towels and laundry soap, are provided for residential use. Residents are also responsible for providing their own food and preparing their own meals.

Q: What should I not bring?

A: All items that display or promote drug or alcohol abuse, profanity, or offensive themes are not allowed on campus. Knives, guns, nun-chucks, batons, and any other items which can be used as a weapon are not permitted on campus. Candles, space heaters, and electric blankets that do not feature an auto shut off are considered fire hazards and are not permitted on campus.

A: Residents at EH typically stay from 3 months to two years. The maximum amount of time permitted to live at Enhanced Horizons was formerly 18 months, but has been extended to a 24 month period.

Q: Why does Enhanced Horizons have a curfew and other rules?

A: Like all programs, we have rules to provide an environment that is safe, stable, and helps eliminate distractions so you can succeed in your academics and training. To keep our residents, staff, and volunteers safe, Enhanced Horizons has a Zero Tolerance Policy against violence and drugs. Any student/resident who violates this policy will be removed from the program.
