Welcome to Project Challenge

Project Challenge is a high school program that enables students to complete their high school curricular requirements while exploring post secondary educational and employment opportunities. Students attend this half-day program in the morning or afternoon. Students receive individualized instruction in the core content areas from a certified teacher and work at their own pace to complete their graduation requirements. A counselor and paraprofessional provide additional assistance for the students.

Project Challenge’s alternative setting fosters increased independence and responsibility. The program structure allows students to be treated as adults. The life-long connections with the adult facilitators, peers and the local community are unique factors of this program that facilitate student success.
