Since we became the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for upwards of 45 years. We are certain that a relationship with Christ is the surest way to transformation in the lives of the teenage boys we serve. Every major portion of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many teenage boys have found success here, even where other programs didn’t work.
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 receive plenty 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 make visits to home on regularly scheduled breaks.
MORE MISSION TRIPS — Mission trips form a strong element of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally desire to give back and serve others.
EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After completion of Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go back home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. 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. In our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who are struggling. We offer a GED option for boys with not enough credits to graduate senior high school on time. Credits earned can transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills for example 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 learning.
Residents at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch take part in many recreational activities, both on and off campus. We run an adventure program second to none. As well as 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 a difference 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 Junction City, Kansas, or another program, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
