New Student Admissions


To apply, pick up application materials at your local campus, and complete the simple steps below. Enrollment applications are accepted year-round. Submit your application early to ensure consideration before classes are filled.

Tour a Campus
A campus tour provides an opportunity to witness the Challenger difference firsthand. Contact the office or click below to schedule a tour of the campus. All newly enrolled children must visit the campus before acceptance.

Read Policies
The Challenger School Policies: Handbook for Parents will be provided during the campus tour.

Submit Packet, Fee, and Deposit
Submit application packet with required forms, the application fee, and the tuition deposit to your local campus. The annual tuition deposit secures each student’s registration for the next academic year and will be applied to the first month’s tuition payment of the next academic year.

Interviews and evaluations help determine the appropriate class for each child. New kindergarten through eighth-grade students must take a placement test.

Child ID and Age Verification
Parents must show a child’s birth certificate or passport and official immunization record.

Preschool—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).

  • September 1 in Idaho, Texas, and Utah
  • September 30 in Nevada
  • December 2 in California

Admissions Requirements

Preschool Admissions


Continuous enrollment eliminates the hassle of submitting paper re-enrollment packets every year. When a student enrolls at Challenger, he or she will automatically be re-enrolled each year until graduation or withdrawal.

Continuous enrollment offers the security and benefit of priority status as well as a discounted tuition rate for returning kindergarten through eighth-grade students. Plus, there are no application fees for academic-year programs.


Parents will be notified of acceptance and student placement via written notification. Class placement is based on several factors, including scholastic expectations, student motivation, and comportment.

Testing or submission of an application does not guarantee a child’s acceptance.
