Parents from all over the nation, including Ozark, Missouri,decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.
Since we became the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for over 45 years. We are certain that a relationship with Christ is the surest way to healing in the lives of the young men we serve. Every main portion of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous young men are finding success here, even where other programs have failed.
Several 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 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 have 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 an important aspect 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 followed by a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Education means much to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we believe education holds the key to future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who are struggling. We offer a GED option for boys with too few credits to finish 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 like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After completing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys choose to continue their classwork from home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance education.
Teens at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch take part in many recreational activities, both on and off campus. We operate an adventure program. As well as being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and dealing well with others.
Many young men have put their lives back on track 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 see if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Ozark, Missouri, or another program, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
