Challenger

  • 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.
