For teen boys with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, legal problems, or minor drug use, hope exists. A chance at a new path is possible through Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We lovingly train at-risk boys to choose a new path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.
If you are searching for therapeutic boarding schools or boys ranches in or near Pharr, Texas, consider that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could be exactly what you need. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Pharr, Texas, but that may be a good thing. Consider this: For teens needing intervention, time spent away from your hometown–away from the negative impact of friends and familiar places—could be just the thing to motivate a transformation. Parents from all over the nation, including Pharr, 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 helping families for more than 38 years. We are certain that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the primary avenue for a lasting difference in the lives of the young men we serve. Every main part of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why so many young men are finding success here, even where other programs have failed.
A number of factors set Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch apart from other therapeutic boarding schools:
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure that boys have 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 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 go back home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Education means a great deal to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we feel education forms a foundation for future success. Within our accredited private Christian school, students complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who need it. We offer a GED option for boys with not enough credits to graduate senior high school in a timely manner. Credits earned can transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys decide to continue their classwork from home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance learning.
Residents at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch take part in a variety of recreational activities, both on and off campus. We facilitate an adventure program that is 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 put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would like to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good option for your son.

“Not only does Teen Challenge help our young people deal with their substance abuse, but is also gives our kids something to live for – a relationship with God, a healthy self-esteem, and a direction in their lives that finally leads somewhere. I sincerely appreciate your efforts to reach and rehabilitate the many young people who have, at present, no hope in life.”

“Too many young [people] have already lost their lives, and too many others have suffered serious injury for us to ignore the problems of juvenile alcohol and drug abuse.
