145. New Horizons Academy
This facility located outside Marion in Indiana used to be the administrative headquater of New Horizons Ministries which was in operation nearly 3 decades. They had facilities in both Canada and the Dominican Republic.
Thankfully they are closed now.

The documentary “Kidnapped for Christ” is also about their organisation
It sounds like it was not a fun place to be as a teenager.
