therapeutic ranchIf you are searching for therapeutic boarding schools or boys ranches in Pennsylvania, be aware that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could be exactly what you are searching for. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Pennsylvania, but that may be a good thing. Think about this: For teens 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 just the thing to motivate a change. Parents from around the country, including Pennsylvania, select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.

Strong Reputation for Healing and Hope for Hundreds of Boys

Teen_Challenge_031Since we became the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for nearly 60 years. We are certain that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the surest way to change in the lives of the boys we serve. Every main component of our program is biblically-based. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why so many boys are finding success here, even where other programs failed.

Several factors set Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch apart from other therapeutic boarding schools: 

  • MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure that boys get plenty 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 can spend nights in their own bedrooms, separate from the noise and influence of the other boys.

  • MORE FAMILY VISITS — Residents are allowed to visit family on regularly scheduled breaks.

  • MORE ADDICTION TREATMENT — Our program is a licensed dual-diagnosis Addiction Treatment Center with staff expertly trained to treat addictions to alcohol or drugs, as well as harmful lifestyle addictions to gambling, pornography, or online gaming.

  • EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After completion of Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go back home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.

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 choose to continue their classwork at home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance learning.
