Since we became the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been helping families for several decades. We feel that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the primary avenue for transformation in the lives of the boys we serve. Every significant element of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous boys have realized success here, even where other programs failed.
A number of factors distinguish Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch from other therapeutic boarding schools:
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low so that boys have lots 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 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 home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Academics mean a great deal to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we find that education strongly supports 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 need it. We offer a GED option for boys with too many missing credits to finish senior high school on time. Credits earned can transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After leaving Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys decide to continue their classwork from home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance learning.
Residents at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch participate in many recreational activities, both on and off campus. We facilitate an adventure program that is 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 teens have turned their lives around and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would be happy to talk with you to see if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Collinsville, Illinois, or another program, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
