Since we became the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families more than 45 years. We feel that a relationship with Christ is the primary avenue for change in the lives of the teenagers we serve. Every main component of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless teenagers are finding success here, even where other programs failed.
A few 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 get plenty of supervision and one-on-one 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 normal scheduled breaks.
MORE MISSION TRIPS — Mission trips form a strong element 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 return home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Academics mean a lot to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we feel education forms a foundation for future success. While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help those who are struggling. We offer a GED track for students with not enough credits to complete high school in an appropriate time frame. Credits earned can transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills for example 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 at home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance education.
Residents at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch participate in numerous 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 working 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. 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 Salina, Kansas, or another program, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
