For teen boys coping with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, legal problems, or drug use or addictions, hope exists. A chance at a new direction is possible through Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We lovingly train troubled boys to choose a different path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.
If you are looking for therapeutic boarding schools or boys ranches in Florida, consider that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could be precisely what you are interested in. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Florida, but that may be a good thing. Consider this: For teenage boys in need of intervention, time spent away from your hometown — away from the negative impact of friends and familiar places — away–separate from the influence of friends and familiar places—might be precisely the right thing to motivate a change. Parents from around the country, including Florida, 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 serving families for more than five decades. We believe that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the best source of transformation in the lives of the boys we serve. Every main part of our program is biblically-based. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why countless boys have discovered success here, even where other programs have 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 so that boys get an abundance of supervision and individual 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 enjoy 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 successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys return home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Christian Boarding School Offering a First-Class Education
Education means a great deal to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we find that education is critical for future success. While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who are struggling. We offer a GED track for those with too many missing credits to complete high school in a timely manner. Credits earned can transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After leaving Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys opt to continue their classwork at home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance education.
Teens at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch engage 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 young men have turned their lives around and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would be happy to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is the right fit for your son.
