Parents gather on Lottery Night

Challenge Preparatory Charter School is celebrating 8 years of excellence in education in Far Rockaway, NY. In recent years, a Middle School for 6-8 grades at 1526 Central Avenue was added following the success of the K-5 site at 710 Hartman Lane.

Challenge Prep is now taking lottery applications for 2018-19 which are due by 5:00p on Thursday, March 29, 2017. The school provides excellent support services for English Language Learners (ELLs) and Special Education scholars particularly in Community School District 27.

“We have exciting new offerings at our Middle School including Honors courses for 8th Graders, an expanded Athletics program, and a Performing Arts Department with music, theater and dance. We encourage families with rising Kindergartners to rising 8th Graders who want high academic standards and robust enrichment activities through our electives and after school activities to apply,” said Founder/CEO Rev. Dr. Les Mullings.

Families interested in applying are invited to attend an Open House in the coming weeks. Open Houses will be offered in the evenings from 5:00-6:00 p.m. At the Middle School at 1526 Central Avenue, Open House dates are the following Thursdays: February 1st and March 8th. At the K-5 site at 710 Hartman Lane, Open House dates are the following Thursdays: February 8th, March 1st, and March 15th.

The Open Houses at either location will feature a tour of the site, an overview of the educational model, student services offered, and a question and answer session. Spanish translators will be available at every Open House, and additional Open Houses will be added as needed.

The random lottery for all grades will take place on April 19th, at 7:00p at the K-5 site at 710 Hartman Lane. The current application can be found at once an account is created on the NYC Charter School Center site.
