Apply for the 2019-20 School Year

We love Application Season at Challenge! It’s a great time of welcoming new families who are interested in our school. This year’s deadline to apply for the 2019-20 academic year is April 1st, 2019 at 5:00P.

Mrs. Tameeka Richards, Director of Enrollment and Recruitment as well as a long-time employee of our school, leads the efforts for the application process.

Richards reflected on this busy part of the year saying, “Every year, I look forward to meeting new families that are so optimistic about what Challenge brings to the community. Annually, the Enrollment team meets families at daycares, Open Houses and on Lottery Night. They all want the same thing for their children, and that is to get their child into our school. The demand for our school keeps me energized and committed to getting the word out there that we are accepting applications, so more families can have the opportunity to experience a great education within a safe and supportive environment. These are the reasons I am so excited every year. I get to open the door to more families and change lives.

Our website has full information on Applying (English or Spanish) including many FAQs. To apply online, go to our portal on School Mint. We also host Open Houses to provide a way for interested families to see the difference at Challenge.

“At these events, families can expect the full Challenge Prep experience. They will get to meet the leaders and teachers that work hard on a daily basis to create the school and environment our scholars love and enjoy. They will experience a day in the life of a CPCS scholar and get a tour of our state of the art facilities,” explained Richards.

Our next and final Open Houses this season are Thursday, March 7th at 5:30P at 1279 Redfern Avenue and Thursday, March 14th at 5:30P at 710 Hartman Lane. Lottery night where all names will be drawn for open seats and the waiting list will be held April 11th.

For inquiries or information about applying, contact Mrs. Richards at or call 718-327-4040 Ext. 512.
