For teen boys dealing with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, legal issues, or minor drug or alcohol abuse, hope exists.

If you are interested in therapeutic boarding schools or boys ranches in or near Washington, Missouri, consider that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch might be just what you are looking for. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is obviously a distance from Washington, Missouri, but that may be a good thing. Think about this: For teens needing intervention, getting away from your hometown — away from the negative impact of friends and familiar places — away–apart from the negative impact of friends and familiar places—could be precisely the right thing to start a change. Parents from all over the nation, including Washington, Missouri, choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.
As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for more than five decades. We are certain that a relationship with Christ is the primary avenue for change in the lives of the young men we serve. Every main element of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous young men have discovered 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 so that boys receive a lot 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 visit family 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 graduation from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go back home with a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Education means a lot to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we find that education holds the key to future success. In our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help those who need it. We offer a GED opportunity for those with too few credits to graduate senior high school on time. 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 graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys opt to continue their classwork from home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance education.
Students at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch participate in a variety of recreational activities, both on and off campus. We operate an adventure program. Besides being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and dealing well with others.
Many boys have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would be happy to talk with you to see if our boarding school is the right fit for your son.
