50 Years with Challenger

June 20, 2013

Sandy, Utah—June 20, 2013—Challenger School began in a one-room school in San Jose, California, in 1963 with 11 preschoolers. Fifty years later, Challenger School has grown to 23 campuses in five states, teaches over 10,000 preschool–grade 8 students each year, and employs over 1,000 people.

In that period, Challenger has taught more than 200,000 students. It teaches students to master bedrock academic subjects and skills early and along the way leads them to develop rational thinking skills and confidence in their own judgment.

Its students gain demonstrably strong academic skills (average student scores are well above the 90th percentile on standardized national tests) via a curriculum and setting that require critical thinking and clear expression. Challenger’s emphasis on self-ownership and individual rights is unique and powerful in inspiring students to become self-reliant achievers.

Challenger continues to grow in its various markets and is poised to accelerate its growth in an effort to lead even more students to gain a solid academic foundation and to find joy in achievement.
