Troubled Teen Therapeutic Boarding School and Ranch for Boys Who are Struggling with Life-Controlling Issues

Teen Challenge Boys RanchVero Beach Boys Ranch is a Christ-centered residential boys ranch and Christian therapeutic boarding school for troubled boys, located in Vero Beach, Florida. We believe in the potential within each boy no matter how much trouble they are causing for themselves. Our Christian staff bring positive goals and purpose to boys who are struggling with life-controlling issues such as anger, minor substance abuse or trouble with the law, or lack of respect for authority. We believe that the first change is a heart change . . . a knowledge that God has a purpose and a plan for each boy’s life. The therapeutic and academic school at Vero Beach Boys Ranch gives at-risk boys a new perspective and a new start toward a successful and fulfilling life.

Therapeutic Boarding School with a Positive Peer Culture

Teen Challenge Boys Ranch

Vero Beach Boys Ranch and Therapeutic Boarding School for Boys promotes and cultivates positive peer pressure.  Students are given duties to take charge of things and each other, taking turns running work programs and events around the property.  Positive peer pressure is infused in nearly everything that takes place on the property.  It’s each boy’s home away from home, so we want them to be involved in making some decisions, and keeping things orderly, respectful of each other, and upbeat.

Typical Day in Our Therapeutic Boarding School for Boys

Our program has been developed to encourage the boys to cope with and master everyday life issues. Boys typically rise at 6:00 am, clean up, have devotions, and attend periodic chapel services. Teenage boys can eat a lot, so breakfast is one of three healthy meals that are provided daily. After school, every student on the ranch engages in sporting activities. The day normally ends with “lights out” at 10:00 pm.

Our therapeutic boarding school is much lower in cost than other therapeutic boarding schools for boys. And keep in mind that financing and transport options are available. See our Admissions page or fill in our Inquiry Form, or speak to the director by calling (772) 978-4164.
