Have you heard about Challenger’s summer program? During our summer Adventureland, preschoolers will go on imaginary trips each week as they learn phonics, numbers, and so much more.
Our morning elementary program is designed to review concepts in reading, grammar, writing, and mathematics, while our afternoon classes include arts and crafts, geography, science, music, and physical fitness. Our programs also focus on teaching life-enhancing behaviors; we offer opportunities for children to learn to manage their emotions, increase their ability to focus, respect themselves and others, and gain confidence as they improve and produce.
Students will engage in unique learning exercises, drills, and activities using methods that have proven successful for nearly six decades.
Half-day and all-day programs are available, and classes begin June 13. It’s the perfect way to enrich your child’s summer days!
If you have not yet enrolled your child in a summer program and would still like to do so, follow the steps below. A $25 application fee will be assessed.

Standardized testing continues this month for our kindergarten through eighth-grade students in Idaho and Texas. Thank you for helping to ensure that students are prepared each day to perform their best on the Iowa Assessments.
In class this month, elementary and middle school students will commemorate Patriots’ Day.
This day marks the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first military engagements of the Revolutionary War, which were fought on April 19, 1775. On this date, the war began, but more importantly, a momentous idea took root—government of, by, and for the people.
Congratulations to Tisha P., a seventh grader from the Berryessa campus who designed this year’s winning comic.
We received many fantastic entries! Thank you to all students who participated in the contest.
The arrival of spring brings excitement for upcoming Spring Programs. Preschooler students will present their programs at the end of April, and kindergarten through eighth-grade students will perform in May.
Families are invited to attend a musical performance highlighting students and the skills they have developed throughout the year (except in California, where government restrictions continue to limit gatherings on campus). Click to see the Spring Program schedules for each participating campus.
At the end of this month, we will celebrate the arrival of spring with our Teddy Bear Picnic. Each student may bring his or her favorite stuffed animal guest to the picnic.
California and Utah students will be on spring break during the week of April 4–8. Spring break for Nevada students will occur the week of April 11–15. Please make arrangements for your child’s care during spring break.
The final testing for the Challenger Physical Fitness Program happens this month. The results of these tests will be sent home with your child’s final achievement report. During the merit assembly at the end of the year, we will recognize the students who achieve high standards of physical fitness.
Mark your calendars now for our two main breaks during the next school year. Challenger will not be in session during the dates listed below:
