Because You Know the Value of Education
Challenger School is an independent private school focused on academic excellence, individual achievement, critical thinking skills, and self-reliance. Our curriculum is built on the foundations of knowledge: language arts, math, and logic. Early mastery of these basics prepares students for advanced studies and learning at an accelerated pace. Our uniquely structured classes yield astonishing results. Challenger students achieve scores on average in the 90th percentile on the national Stanford Achievement Test (SAT). This means that our average student outperforms nine out of ten students who take that test. Challenger School offers preschool through eighth grade programs. Come tour our beautiful campus, learn about our renowned programs, and meet our amazing staff.
