If you are searching for therapeutic boarding schools or boys ranches in or near Fort Hood, Texas, take into account that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch may be just what you are interested in. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Fort Hood, Texas, but that may be a good thing. Think about this: For teenage boys needing intervention, time spent away from your hometown–apart from the negative impact of friends and familiar places—might be precisely the right thing to cause a change. Parents from across the country, including Fort Hood, Texas, select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.
As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for over 45 years. We are certain that a relationship with Jesus is the best source of healing in the lives of the boys we serve. Every significant part of our program is biblically based. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many boys have discovered success here, even where other programs didn’t work.
Several factors set Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch apart from other therapeutic boarding schools:
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low so 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 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 need to give back and serve others.
EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go back home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Education means a lot to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we believe education holds the key to future success. While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who need it. We offer a GED track for anyone with too many missing credits to graduate senior high school on time. Credits earned can transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys prefer to continue their classwork from home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance education.
Residents at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch engage in numerous recreational activities, both on and off campus. Besides being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and cooperating well with others.
Many boys have turned their lives around and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would love to talk with you to see if our boarding school is the right fit for your son. Whether you decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Fort Hood, Texas, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
