Character-Building

For boys, Teen Challenge is a holistic character-building program – meaning that we are concerned with the body, mind, and spirit of those who come to us for help. We endeavor to help teens become confident, mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive.

Educational and Character Recovery for Struggling Boys

“Teen Challenge boarding schools are effective, lower in cost, and highly caring alternatives to the more expensive therapeutic boarding schools.” — Editors of BestTherapeuticBoardingSchools.com

The Teen Challenge residential programs and schools help boys get back on the right track educationally and mentally, while also learning that they have a higher purpose and calling on this Earth. Teen Challenge surrounds its students all day long with a Christian environment designed to help facilitate life change through our team’s witness and guidance.

boys schoolOur schools offer an educational program that is fully accredited and tailored to meet students’ specific needs.  Students who complete high school receive an official high school diploma.  Credits are transferable. On-site teachers track student progress, tutor students, and offer additional aids to learning as needed.  Students who give their best effort in academics are recognized for their achievements and may earn additional rewards.


Our Typical Students

When boys start spinning out of control, they usually exhibit signs which parents need to look for.  Boys that most benefit from our program come to us after the parents observe the following changes in their boy’s attitude and behavior:

  • • Dramatic changes in appearance, attitudes, and desires
  • • Hanging out with the wrong crowd 
  • • School tardiness and/or truancies, loss of good grades
  • • Isolating from family and old friends
  • • Changes in attitude and personality, lack of care
  • • Forsaking previous future goals and positive activities 
  • • Experimentation with harmful substances
  • • Sudden fits of anger or rage, disrespect for authority
  • • Lies, manipulation, theft
  • • Dramatic mood swings and lack of sleep
  • • Shocking loss of a moral compass


About Our Educational Program

We believe that a Christian worldview and a traditional education are needed for teens who have previously had a poor or undisciplined educational experience, leading to a lack of preparation for their own future. While enrolled here, boys are required to work on their courses all weekdays, catching up for lost time and retaking failed or low-grade courses.  Our on-campus accredited private school is facilitated by our certified teachers. 

Boys Get a Second Chance at Education 

Teens come to us with various academic records, often with a history of failing grades and skipping classes. For many of our students, enrollment here means a second chance at graduating high school with good grades, a possibility nearly destroyed by their former lifestyle. Our individualized curriculum, along with one-on-one instruction from our teaching staff, allows the boys to gain mastery of subjects, improve past failing subjects, and earn missed credits toward a high school diploma.

Today, what is NOT taught is almost as important as what IS taught…
Unlike today’s public schools and schoolbooks, we don’t push a sociopolitical agenda, race theories, gender manipulation, and altered American history. We simply teach the most important basic skills needed in life, and we help our students find real purpose and meaning.
