Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch enrolls boys from Mississippi and across the nation on its Arkansas campus. It is exceptional from all other Teen Challenge programs in that it has private bedrooms for each of the boys. It also features top academics, licensed addiction treatment (insurance accepted), an awesome wilderness adventure program, mission trips, and equine therapy.
For teen boys with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, legal issues, or substance abuse, we can help. A chance at a new direction is possible through this Teen Challenge program for adolescent boys. We lovingly train wayward boys to choose a new path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.
If you would like to find a Teen Challenge for your boy in Mississippi, be aware that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could possibly be exactly what you are looking for. Located in Arkansas, it may be a distance from Mississippi, but that may be a good thing. Boys needing intervention may need to get away from your hometown — away from the negative impact of friends and familiar places — away and the negative impact of friends there.
As the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been helping families for over 40 years. A relationship with Christ is the best source of change in the lives of the boys. Every major element of our Teen Challenge program is biblically-based.
Several factors set Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch apart from other similar programs:
MUCH LOWER COST! Teen Challenge is a fraction of the cost of other therapeutic programs.
ADDICTION TREATMENT — Our program is a licensed dual-diagnosis Addiction Treatment Center with staff expertly trained to treat substance abuse, as well as harmful lifestyle addictions to gambling, pornography, or online gaming.
6-MONTH AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After completion of this Teen Challenge, boys go back home followed by a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low so that boys receive plenty of supervision and individual attention. Also, our staff are highly trained and most have bachelor or master’s degrees in their area of work.
ADVENTURE-BASED THERAPY — Our students have regular opportunities to experience fun and challenging outdoor trips and activities. Students enjoy camping, backpacking, rappelling, canoeing, and hiking, climbing and cave exploration. Boys are challenged physically and learn the importance of responsibility, goals and perseverance.
Academics mean much to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, because we feel education holds the key to future success. 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.
Parents from all over the country, including Mississippi, decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their son.
Teens at Teen Challenge take part 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 cooperating well with others.
Many boys have turned their lives around and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after successfully finishing Teen Challenge. We would love to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge, a school in Mississippi, or another program, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.

Mississippi is a U.S. state located in the Southern United States. Jackson is the state capital and largest city. The name of the state derives from the Mississippi River, which flows along its western boundary, whose name comes from the Ojibwe word misi-ziibi (“Great River”). Mississippi is the 32nd most extensive and the 31st most populous of the 50 United States. The state is heavily forested outside of the Mississippi Delta area, which was cleared for cotton cultivation in the 19th century. Today, its catfish aquaculture farms produce the majority of farm-raised catfish consumed in the United States. The state symbol is the magnolia grandiflora tree.
