New Student Admissions


Child Identification and Age Verification
Parents must provide a child’s birth certificate or passport.

Children are eligible for preschool at 2 years 9 months in California and Utah and at 3 years in Idaho, Nevada, and Texas.

Children are eligible for kindergarten if 5 years old by September 1 in Idaho, Nevada, Texas, and Utah or by December 2 in California.

Children must be trained in bathroom habits—wearing diapers or training pants is not acceptable at school.

Campus Visit
A campus visit provides an opportunity for parents to observe the Challenger difference and is required for all prospective students before acceptance.

On-site, in-person interviews and evaluations help determine the appropriate program for each child. New kindergarten through eighth-grade applicants must take a placement test.

Enrollment applications are accepted year-round. Contact a campus to request an online application; submit early to ensure consideration before classes are filled.

In order for a submitted online application to be processed, the following must be completed:

  • read the Challenger School Policies: Handbook for Parents
  • sign the enrollment agreements and necessary forms
  • pay an application fee and tuition deposit

Admissions Requirements


Elementary and Middle School Admissions


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.


Continuous enrollment eliminates the hassle of enrolling every year. When a student enrolls at Challenger, he or she will be automatically re-enrolled each year until graduation or withdrawal, as long as the student meets Challenger’s academic and comportment standards.

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.
