The Challenge and Discovery Program is an enrichment program designed to provide students with a positive educational experience. It models and instills a love of learning and discovery, and nurtures self-confidence and self esteem.
Structure of the Program
Students attend Challenge and Discovery twice per month in the students’ home school and are taught by the school’s highly qualified Gifted and Talented teachers. Students are grouped by grade level and are exposed to problem-based learning activities throughout the course of their day. Upon entering school, students report to their home classroom in the morning for attendance and return before the end of the day for dismissal. Children who have Physical Education on their assigned day of Challenge & Discovery will attend and then return to the Challenge & Discovery room. All students are responsible for concepts missed in the regular classroom while they are at Challenge and Discovery.
Students who have outstanding scores on the Test of Cognitive Abilities, achievement tests, and consistently perform at the highest standards in their classroom may be selected to participate in the program.
