For teen boys experiencing anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, legal problems, or minor substance abuse, hope exists. An opportunity for a new life is possible through Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We lovingly train at-risk boys to choose a different path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.
If you would like to find therapeutic boarding schools or boys ranches in or near Lake Jackson, Texas, consider that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch may be just what you are interested in. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Lake Jackson, Texas, but that may be a good thing. Think about this: For boys in need of intervention, spending time away from your hometown–apart from the negative impact of friends and familiar places—could be exactly what he needs to cause a change. Parents from around the country, including Lake Jackson, Texas, select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.
As the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for over 38 years. We are certain that a relationship with Christ is the primary avenue for change in the lives of the boys we serve. Every major portion of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why so many boys have found success here, even where other programs didn’t work.
A few factors set Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch apart from other therapeutic boarding schools:
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure boys get a lot of supervision and personal 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 visit family on normal scheduled breaks.
MORE MISSION TRIPS — Mission trips form a key component of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally want to give back and serve others.
EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After completion of Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys return home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Academics mean 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 complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who need it. We offer a GED opportunity for those with too many missing credits to complete senior high school in an appropriate time frame. Credits earned can transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After completing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys decide to continue their classwork from home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance education.
Teens at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch participate in many recreational activities, both on and off campus. We run an adventure program that is 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 young men have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would like to talk with you to see if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Lake Jackson, Texas, or another program, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
