"Embrace the Challenge"

"An Opportunity for a Second Chance"

Why ChalleNGe


The Capital Guardian Youth ChalleNGe Academy has made it a mission to provide a second chance at success for high school dropouts and disengaged youth.  Studies show that 25% of students dropout of high school before completing the 9th grade.  Many of those youth hunger for success but often take the wrong path.  Through structure and guidance provided by the Capital Guardian Youth CahlleNGe Academy, youth develope the skillsets to become self disciplined and confident young adults.

"Our vision is to add value to America through a commitment to our community."
