About us

What we stand for

Since 2010, Challenge Preparatory Charter School has served parents and scholars through our K-5 Elementary School. Our 2017-18 academic year represented the realization of our full charter as we added 8th Grade for the first time in our school's history. Now we look to the future as we add our High School in 2020-21.

The mission of Challenge Preparatory Charter School (Challenge) is to prepare students from the greater Far Rockaway community to excel academically, to demonstrate mastery of the NYS and Common Core Learning Standards and to achieve their career aspirations. Challenge cultivates and supports the intellectual, aesthetic, social, emotional and ethical development of its students and prepares them to be responsible 21st century citizens. To accomplish its mission, Challenge offers a rigorous instructional program in a safe, supportive, technology-infused and data-enriched school environment.
