If you are looking for therapeutic boarding schools or boys ranches in or near Helotes, Texas, take into account that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could be just what you are looking for. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Helotes, Texas, but that may be a good thing.

Parents from across the country, including Helotes, Texas, select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.
As the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been helping families for over 38 years. We believe that a relationship with Christ is the best source of transformation in the lives of the teenagers we serve. Every major portion of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many 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 so that boys get lots 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 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 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 successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys return home followed by 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 believe education strongly supports future success. While enrolled in our accredited private Christian school, boys work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help those who need it. We offer a GED opportunity for anyone 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 may also study basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After leaving Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys opt to continue their classwork from home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance education.
Boys at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch take part in a multitude of recreational activities, both on and off campus. We operate an adventure program second to none. Besides being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and dealing well with others.
Many boys 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 love 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 Helotes, Texas, or another program, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
