Family Renewal

Prayer Mountain Boys Academy restores boys’ relationships with God and their family.

Welcome to Prayer Mountain Boys Academy

Teen Challenge Prayer Mountain Boys Academy is a year-round, faith-based program for adolescent boys struggling with drug or alcohol abuse, anger, and other destructive choices. The program enrolls boys ages 13-17 who have life-controlling issues or have gotten off track in life.

Our Christian boarding school for boys feels like a home. The beautiful 36-acre campus gives boys a peaceful and spacious setting in which to make lasting life change.

A Relational Atmosphere that Brings Growth

Prayer Mountain Boys Academy centers on relationships. We introduce boys to Jesus Christ, believing that this relationship above all others has the power to heal and transform hurting lives. Our committed staff understand the situations facing these young men, many from personal experience, and they love the boys like family. We help them to grow in their relationships with themselves and with each other and, in time, to heal broken relationships with their parents and families.

Addressing Behavioral Issues

Our boarding school is specifically designed to help teen boys ages 13-17 who are struggling with various behavioral issues or rebellion. Each Student is assigned to the caseload of an on-site Counselor. Some of these issues may include:

  • advanced HomeLow Self-esteem

  • Deceitfulness/Cheating/Theft

Prepared for a Healthy Future

Education can open doors for young men, so we prepare them well for the workforce or further educational pursuits through an accredited junior high and high school program. Education is only the beginning of what our Christian boarding school offers, however. We emphasize leadership through formal training, opportunities among peers on campus, and internships for those who have completed our program. Boys leave the school equipped with life skills that will continue to support their positive choices in all areas of life.

God directed my steps and changed me one step at a time. He healed all the anger and everything else that was in my life before. I figured out that I couldn’t do things on my own, but that God was the only one who could direct my life.

I decided to give God a chance and surrender everything to Him. As I began to repent, I finally realized all the things I’ve been going through didn’t have to be there anymore. Since then, my life has never been the same.
