If you are searching for therapeutic boarding schools or boys ranches in or near Mount Pleasant, Texas, be aware that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could possibly be precisely what you are looking for. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Mount Pleasant, Texas, but that may be a good thing. Think about this: For boys in need of intervention, getting away from your hometown–away from the influence of friends and familiar places—may be precisely the right thing to motivate a change. Parents from all over the country, including Mount Pleasant, 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 offering hope to families more than 38 years. We believe that a relationship with Jesus is the surest way to change 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 discovered success here, even where other programs failed.
Several factors set Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch apart from other therapeutic boarding schools:
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low so that boys have a lot 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 have 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 an important aspect of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally desire 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 continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Education means much to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we believe education is critical for future success. Within our accredited private Christian school, students study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who are struggling. We offer a GED track for students with too few credits to graduate high school on time. Credits earned can transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After completing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys choose to continue their classwork at home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance education.
Boys at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch engage in many recreational activities, both on and off campus. We facilitate 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 dealing well with others.
Many teens have turned their lives around and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch.
