Since we became the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for over 38 years. We feel that a relationship with Jesus is the best source of a lasting difference in the lives of the boys we serve. Every significant element of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous boys are finding success here, even where other programs didn’t work.
A number of factors distinguish Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch from other therapeutic boarding schools:
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low so that boys get a lot of supervision and individual 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 visit family on seasonally scheduled breaks.
MORE MISSION TRIPS — Mission trips form a strong element of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally wish 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.
Education means a lot to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we find that education strongly supports future success. While enrolled in our accredited private Christian school, boys study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who are struggling. We offer a GED opportunity for those with not enough credits to complete senior high school in a timely manner. Credits earned can transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After leaving Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys choose to continue their classwork from home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance education.
Boys at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch engage in a variety of recreational activities, both on and off campus. As well as being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and cooperating well with others.

Flower Mound is a town in Denton and Tarrant counties in the U.S. state of Texas, and a suburb of Fort Worth and Dallas. Its population was 50,702 at the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2000 census, and 64,669 at the 2010 Census. The town derives its name from the prominent Convert mound located in the southern portion of the town. The most widely accepted explanation for the mound is that it was a sacred ceremonial ground of Wichita Indians in the early 19th century. Though surrounded by commercial and residential development, the mound is privately owned to protect it from further development.
