As the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been helping families for upwards of 45 years. We believe that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the best source of a lasting difference in the lives of the young men we serve. Every main part of our program is biblically based. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why countless young men are finding 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 so that boys get 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 seasonally scheduled breaks.
MORE MISSION TRIPS — Mission trips form a key component of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally wish to give back and serve others.
EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys return home with a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Education means a lot to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we think education is critical for future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who are struggling. We offer a GED opportunity for anyone with too few credits to finish senior high school in a timely manner. Credits earned can transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After leaving Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys decide to continue their classwork from home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance learning.
Students at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch engage in a variety of 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 boys have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference 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 option for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Wentzville, Missouri, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
