If you are searching for therapeutic boarding schools or boys ranches in or near Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, be aware that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could possibly be exactly what you are looking for. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, but that may be a good thing. Consider this: For boys needing intervention, spending time away from your hometown–apart from the influence of friends and familiar places—may be just the thing to cause a transformation. Parents from across the nation, including Breaux Bridge, Louisiana,decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.
As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families more than 45 years. We are certain that a relationship with Jesus is the primary avenue for transformation in the lives of the teenagers we serve. Every significant part of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many teenagers have realized success here, even where other programs failed.
A number of 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 get a lot of supervision and one-on-one 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 enjoy 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 a key component of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally wish to give back and serve others.
EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After completion of Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go back home with a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Education means much to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we think education holds the key to future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who need it. We offer a GED opportunity for those with too many missing credits to complete high school in an appropriate time frame. Credits earned can transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After leaving Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys decide to continue their classwork at home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance education.
Students at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch participate in many recreational activities, both on and off campus. We run an adventure program. In addition to being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and dealing well with others.
Many young men have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would be happy to talk with you to see if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, or another program, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
