Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch helps boys from Alabama on its Northwest Arkansas Campus. It is exceptional in that it has private bedrooms for each of the boys, an exciting wilderness program, and it includes mission trips and equine therapy.
For teen boys dealing with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, legal issues, or substance abuse, hope exists. An opportunity for a new direction is possible through Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We lovingly train wayward 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 Alabama, consider that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch may be just what you are looking for. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Alabama, but that may be a good thing. Think about this: For teens needing intervention, time spent away from your hometown — away from the negative impact of friends and familiar places — away–apart from the influence of friends and familiar places—may be precisely the right thing to start a big change. Parents from all over the nation, including Alabama, decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their son.
Strong Reputation for Healing and Hope for Hundreds of Boys
As the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for several decades. We believe that a relationship with Christ is the best source of healing in the lives of the young men we serve. Every main element of our program is biblically-based. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous young men have found success here, even where other programs didn’t work.
A few factors show the difference between Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch and other therapeutic boarding schools:
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure 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 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.
EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After graduation from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys return home followed by a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Christian Boarding School Offering a First-Class Education
Education means a lot to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we believe education strongly supports future success. While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys study courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who are struggling. We offer a GED opportunity for students with too few credits to graduate senior high school in a timely manner. Credits earned can transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys opt to continue their classwork at home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance learning.
Residents at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch participate in a multitude of recreational activities, both on and off campus. We run an adventure program. In addition to being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and cooperating 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.
