A Therapeutic Boarding School for Boys, Offering Adventure-Based Learning and Wilderness Therapy, Now Enrolling Boys Year-Round from Montana
Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys enrolls boys from Montana on its Northwest Arkansas Campus. It is unique in that it has 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 dealing with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, legal problems, or substance abuse, 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 are looking for therapeutic boarding schools or boys ranches in Montana, take into account that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch might be exactly what you need. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Montana, but that may be a good thing. Consider this: For boys 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—might be just the thing to cause a transformation. Parents from all over the country, including Montana, choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their son.
60-Year History of 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 50 years. We feel that a relationship with Jesus is the primary avenue for change in the lives of the teenage boys we serve. Every main element of our program is biblically-based. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why countless teenage boys are finding success here, even where other programs didn’t work.
A number of 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 that boys have lots 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 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 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 accompanied 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
Academics mean much to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we think education forms a foundation for 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 option for boys with too few credits to complete high school in an appropriate time frame. Credits earned can transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. 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.
Teens at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch engage in numerous recreational activities, both on and off campus. We run an adventure program second to none. 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 a difference for Christ after graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would like to talk with you to see if our boarding school is a good fit for your son.
