CBS News features ChalleNGe Academy Schools

You may have seen one of the recent stories on the CBS Evening News showing high school dropouts getting back on track.  The news series follows the Youth ChalleNGe Academy Program run by the National Guard.

We are very familiar with this wonderful program and its success.  Texas ChalleNGe Academy in Iraan-Sheffield, Texas has been an Ascend Math Gold Medalist School. The math results they’ve achieved with high school dropouts and students in danger of dropping out is nothing short of sensational.  In just three months, under their program all their students using Ascend Math gained a full grade level of math or more with 19% gaining two or more years’ grade level growth. Their Principal, Candra Cade is an active member of the Ascend Math Advisory Council.  See more on the Ascend Math Results page, under Alternative Schools.
