New Student Admissions


The admissions process includes interviews and evaluations to determine the appropriate class for each child. Contact the office to schedule a parent and child tour of the campus.

New students (K-8) take a placement test to help determine appropriate class placement.

Children as young as 2 years and 9 months old who are fully trained in bathroom habits are eligible for preschool programs (except in Idaho and Texas where state regulations prevent us from accepting children younger than three).

Kindergarten—To be considered for entrance into kindergarten, children must be 5 years old by:
• September 1 in Idaho, Texas, and Utah
• September 30 in Nevada
• December 2 in California

Enrollment DATES

Enrollment applications are accepted for consideration year-round. Submit your application early in the year to ensure consideration before fall classes are filled.

Current students must re-apply each year and can re-enroll as early as January before the upcoming school year (during the priority enrollment period).


Submission of an application does not guarantee a child's acceptance.

Priority enrollment will be given to qualified returning Challenger students and their unenrolled siblings.

Academic progress, comportment, and timely application are used to determine acceptance.
