Since we became the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for more than 38 years. We are certain that a relationship with Jesus is the best source of a lasting difference in the lives of the teenage boys we serve. Every significant portion of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous teenage boys have found success here, even where other programs have failed.
Several factors distinguish Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch from other therapeutic boarding schools:
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low in order that boys receive 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 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 find that education forms a foundation for future success. While enrolled in our accredited private Christian school, students complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who are struggling. We offer a GED opportunity for anyone with not enough credits to complete high school on time. Credits earned can transfer to public or private 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.
Residents at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch engage in a variety of recreational activities, both on and off campus. We run an adventure program. In addition to being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and cooperating well with others.
Many teens have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would like to talk with you to see if our boarding school is a good fit for your son.
