At Challenger School, our mission is to prepare children to become self-reliant, productive individuals; to teach them to think, speak, and write with clarity, precision, and independence; and to inspire them to embrace challenge and find joy and self-worth through achievement.
Challenger helps children become adults who are led by neither peer pressures nor common sentiment, but by the strength of their own thinking.
As we teach content, we teach method—logic and thinking skills.
Students learn to evaluate, question, and search for connections.
Finding and understanding the connections between concepts is what enables students to retain and then apply and extend their knowledge.
They learn to find connections by doing things in logical sequence—that is how they learn to recognize logical progression.
Challenger students learn about freedom, and that each person has fundamental rights.
They learn to respect the person and property of others.
Students learn how honesty, integrity, and independence relate, and that with these traits they earn personal dignity.
