Emotional Support

For girls, Teen Challenge is a holistic therapeutic 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 mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive.

Educational and Spiritual Recovery

“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 girls get back on the right track educationally 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.

Teen Challenge

Our 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 schools utilize a faith-friendly academic curriculum provided by Edgenuity, a leading provider of learning solutions.  This curriculum is designed to give students access to their highest potential with Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) course options and credit recovery for students who have lagged in their education.   

Our teachers and counselors also facilitate our faith-based character-building courses with the girls (individually and in groups), a key aspect of our overall program.  We utilize landmark curriculum by today’s leading Christian authors and therapists to teach key concepts.  Each campus offers unique opportunities to engage in activities to help your teen discover her purpose and value.  Students may have the opportunity to participate in local church services, art therapy, horsemanship programs, community outreach, fine arts events, mission trips, and conferences as a part of their enrollment at Teen Challenge. 

Today, what we DON’T teach is almost as important as what we DO teach…
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 skills needed in life and we help our students find real purpose and meaning.
