Summer Academy

Our Summer Academy is designed to give subject specific instruction for 6-8 Challenge Middle School scholars who are struggling to meet standards throughout the regular academic year. The Academy is by invitation only and is designed to help increase proficiency and to help students improve their skills and confidence over the course of the summer.

The specialized academy is run by faculty and staff led by the Challenge Charter Middle School Principal Mavgar Mondesir-Gordon.
