Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Monroe, Louisiana, but that may be a good thing. Think about this: For boys needing intervention, getting away from your hometown–apart from the negative impact of friends and familiar places—could be just the thing to motivate a change. Parents from all over the country, including Monroe, Louisiana,select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.
As the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for over 45 years. We believe that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the primary avenue for healing in the lives of the boys we serve. Every major part of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous 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 in order that boys have 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 make visits to home on seasonally 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 graduation from 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.
Academics mean much to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we think education forms a foundation for future success. In our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help those who are struggling. We offer a GED track for students with too few credits to finish high school on time. Credits earned can transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys opt to continue their classwork at home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance education.
Teens at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch participate in a variety of recreational activities, both on and off campus. We operate an adventure program second to none. In addition to being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and working well with others.
Many boys have turned their lives around and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would love to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Monroe, Louisiana, or another option, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
