For teen boys coping with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, legal issues, or minor drug or alcohol abuse, hope exists. An opportunity for a new path is possible through Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We lovingly train wayward boys to choose a new path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.
If you are looking for therapeutic boarding schools or boys ranches in Georgia, take into account that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could possibly be just what you are interested in. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Georgia, but that may be a good thing. Think about this: For boys in need of intervention, getting away from your hometown–away from the pressure of friends and familiar places—may be precisely the right thing to spark a big change. Parents from across the country, including Georgia,decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.
As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families more than 45 years. We are certain that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the surest way to transformation in the lives of the young men we serve. Every major component of our program is biblically-based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous young men have discovered success here, even where other programs have failed.
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low so that boys have a lot of supervision and personal attention. Our staff are highly trained and most have bachelor or master’s degrees in their area of work.
ADVENTURE-BASED LEARNING — Our outdoor adventure program is second to none. Our students have regular opportunities to experience fun and challenging outdoor activities. Students enjoy camping, backpacking, rappelling, canoeing, and spelunking (cave exploration). Students are challenged physically and learn the importance of goals and perseverance.
MORE PRIVACY FOR EACH BOY — Rather than housing all the boys in a large dorm filled with bunk beds, our students have their own bedrooms, separate from the noise and influence of the other boys.
MORE FAMILY VISITS — Residents are allowed to make visits to home on normal scheduled breaks.
MORE MISSION TRIPS — Mission trips form an important aspect of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally wish to give back and serve others.
EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go back home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Education means a lot to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we find that education is critical for future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who need it. We offer a GED opportunity for anyone with too few credits to graduate high school in an appropriate time frame. Credits earned can transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After leaving Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys opt to continue their classwork from home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance learning.
Boys at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch participate in many recreational activities, both on and off campus. We operate an adventure program second to none. As well as being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and cooperating well with others.
Many young men have turned their lives around and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would love to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Georgia, or another option, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.

“Not only does Teen Challenge help our young people deal with their substance abuse, but is also gives our kids something to live for – a relationship with God, a healthy self-esteem, and a direction in their lives that finally leads somewhere. I sincerely appreciate your efforts to reach and rehabilitate the many young people who have, at present, no hope in life.”
Former Attorney General
“Teen Challenge changes the world one person at a time.”
Founder, Prison Fellowship
“The Teen Challenge program succeeds when all of the government programs have failed.”
“Too many young [people] have already lost their lives, and too many others have suffered serious injury for us to ignore the problems of juvenile alcohol and drug abuse. Programs such as Teen Challenge work to change young people’s lives by changing their hearts. I commend you for your work with young men who are addicted to drugs or alcohol.”
“In my opinion, Teen Challenge is doing the best all-around job of providing the kids with something meaningful in their lives. And that’s what they all need. . .I thank you for your continuing support for Teen Challenge.”
Former US Drug Czar
“Of all the drug programs reported to the Commission, the most successful is the program conducted by Teen Challenge.”
Past Director, AT&T Corporation
“Teen Challenge is one of the most successful programs in our country.”
