Parents from around the country, including Missouri,decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.

45 Year Reputation for Healing and Hope for Hundreds of Boys

Teen_Challenge_031Since we became the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been helping families for more than 45 years. We believe that a relationship with Jesus is the best source of transformation in the lives of the teenagers we serve. Every major part of our program is biblically-based. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why so many teenagers have realized success here, even where other programs failed.

A number of factors distinguish Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch from other therapeutic boarding schools: 

  • MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure that boys get an abundance 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 regularly scheduled breaks.

  • MORE MISSION TRIPS — Mission trips form a strong element of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally need to give back and serve others.

  • EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After graduation from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys return home with a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.

Christian Boarding School Offering a First-Class Education

While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help those who need it. We offer a GED option for those with not enough credits to graduate senior high school in a timely manner. Credits earned can transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After leaving Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys decide to continue their classwork from home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance learning.
