What is Challenger?
Challenger is an after-school enrichment program for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. The program is housed at each of the district's elementary schools. The Challenger enrichment program is separate from the regular school day. Challenger is an optional, self-supporting, academic program. The Challenger program operates daily during the school year from 2:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Enrollment for Challenger is on a full-time basis during the school year. Enrollment is based on the expectation that students are able to actively participate in the program and meaningfully benefit from being with other children. Registration forms must be turned in to the Site Director for their review. Site Directors are available 3:30-6:00 p.m., Monday – Friday. At the time of your application submission, the director will provide you with a start date. The daily schedule includes homework and snack time, healthy activities and Challenger curriculum. Here is the Parent's Guide to help answer additional questions you may have.
How do I register my child for Challenger?
Give a completed registration form (pages A, B, C and D with banking information) to the site director at your child's school. The directors are listed below. Registration forms are in the office of our elementary schools, as well as the Rock Hill Schools District Office. When completed registration forms are received by the site director on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, there is enough time to set the account up for the student to begin the following Monday. Please confirm your child’s start date with your Challenger site director at the time of your application submission.
