therapeutic ranchIf you are interested in therapeutic boarding schools or boys ranches in New York, be aware that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch might be exactly what you are interested in. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from New York, but that may be a good thing. Consider this: For teenage boys needing intervention, spending time away from your hometown–separate from the influence of friends and familiar places—might be precisely the right thing to motivate a change. Parents from around the nation, including New York, select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.

Strong Reputation for Healing and Hope for Hundreds of Boys

Teen_Challenge_031As the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for several decades. We are certain that a relationship with Christ is the surest way to a lasting difference in the lives of the teenagers we serve. Every significant portion of our program is biblically-based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous teenagers have found success here, even where other programs have failed.

Several factors set Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch apart from other therapeutic boarding schools: 

  • MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low in order that boys receive 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 can spend nights in 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 seasonally scheduled breaks.

  • MORE ADDICTION TREATMENT — Our program is a licensed dual-diagnosis Addiction Treatment Center with staff expertly trained to treat addictions to alcohol or drugs, as well as harmful lifestyle addictions to gambling, pornography, or online gaming.

  • EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After completion of Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go back home followed by a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.

Boys may also study basic vocational skills for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After leaving Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys choose to continue their classwork at home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance learning.
