A Therapeutic Boarding School for Boys, Offering Adventure-Based Learning and Wilderness Therapy, Now Enrolling Boys Year-Round from California
Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys enrolls boys from California on its Northwest Arkansas Campus. It features addiction treatment and private bedrooms for each of the boys, an exciting wilderness adventure program, as well as mission trips and equine therapy.
For teen boys coping with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, authority issues, or drug use or addictions, hope exists. The ability to choose a new life is possible through Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We lovingly train struggling boys to choose a different path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.
If you would like to find therapeutic boarding schools or boys ranches in California, be aware that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could be just what you need. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from California, but that may be a good thing. Think about this: For teens in need of intervention, spending time 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 motivate a change. Parents from all over the nation, including California, select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their son.
60-Year History of Healing and Hope for Hundreds of Boys
As the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for more than five decades. We believe that a relationship with Jesus is the best source of change in the lives of the teenage boys we serve. Every main part of our program is biblically-based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous teenage boys have found success here, even where other programs have failed.
Several 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 receive 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 can spend nights in 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 regularly 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 the forward momentum. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Christian Boarding School Offering a First-Class Education
Academics mean a great deal to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, 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 aid those who are struggling. We offer a GED opportunity for boys with not enough credits to complete senior high school on time. Credits earned can transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After completing 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 participate in numerous recreational activities, both on and off campus. We run an adventure program 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 young men have turned their lives around and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch.
