Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Channelview, Texas, but that may be a good thing. Consider this: For boys in need of intervention, time spent away from your hometown–away from the effect of friends and familiar places—might be precisely the right thing to spark a change. Parents from all over the country, including Channelview, Texas,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 for over 45 years. We are certain that a relationship with Christ is the primary avenue for a lasting difference in the lives of the teenagers we serve. Every major part of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless teenagers are finding success here, even where other programs failed.
A number of factors show the difference between Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch and other therapeutic boarding schools:
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure that boys receive an abundance 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 have their own bedrooms, separate from the noise and influence of the other boys.
MORE FAMILY VISITS — Residents are allowed to visit family on regularly scheduled breaks.
MORE MISSION TRIPS — Mission trips form a key component of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally desire to give back and serve others.
EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After graduation from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go back home followed by a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Academics mean much to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we feel education is critical for 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 few credits to graduate senior high school in an appropriate time frame. Credits earned can transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys choose to continue their classwork at home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance education.
Teens at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch participate in a multitude of recreational activities, both on and off campus. We run an adventure program. Besides being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and cooperating well with others.
Many boys have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would be happy to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is the right fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Channelview, Texas, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
