It is great to have all the cadets back on campus. They went back into the routine and of course are looking forward to the 2nd pass later this month.

This post is in response to Class 55 Graduation-

Once the graduation ceremony has ended and the Virtual session is over, would their be an opportunity to purchase a DVD? This is just a thought.

Please remember that this is a pivotal moment for all of our young men and women. I am proud of my child's accomplishments. As a parent I would like the opportunity to view this ceremony again and again at my convenience.

Recordings and pictures last a lifetime. Is there anyway we can make this happen for the graduation ceremony?

Additionally, if this was not planned, can you please make the necessary arrangements to make a DVD of the ceremony available to parents and families, since we can no longer take part of the ceremony as previously arranged.
Any updates on possible dates for students to start on campus training? I have reviewed the guidelines for phase 2 and 3. Would the program be able to function under phase 2?
Here is a great link for to study the ASVAP. You can take the practice test and study any areas of weakness. Remember higher scores open more opportunities! If you study daily you'll be ready when you take the pretest in May/June
Good day, 5-2! Haven't heard an update but sending words of encouragement to all of you. Chin up and face the obstacle at hand...you can only do one thing at a time. Wishing y'all the best in your studies!
Thank you so much Challenge for all that you are doing not just for my cadet but all the cadets! I am so proud of daughter Leayah Seward! I know without a doubt that my child will walk into greatness! I have cried happy tears everyday! I thank God for Challenge!
Thank you Challenge...You all helped my child do in 6 months what he could not do in 4 years of HS. I just heard my child Cadet Anthony Johnson just earned his GED!! πŸŽ“He is a perfect example to show that traditional schooling doesn't work for everyone!! VA CHALLENGE YOU ROCK!
Again I thank you for boosting his confidence and helping him begin a new chapter in his life!! 😍πŸ₯°πŸ‘¨πŸΎβ€πŸŽ“
How about marching our hot tired Cadets down to the 7-11 for "FREE SLURPEE DAY" today bet 11am-7pm. I think that would be a great treat!! I know that is not in your POD but maybe you could add it!!😍πŸ₯΅πŸ‘
My son AJ, Class 51, 1st Plt came home last Wednesday on his 1st pass and when I say NON
STOP I mean non stop!! He has not stopped talking about the program. I know this was the best decision he has made in his 18 yo. He has talked about

everything that has to do with the CHALLENGE". I have never seen my child so proud of his accomplishments like he is now. He has marched for me, sang cadence to me, showed me the exercises he does daily along with the ones they do for punishment!! He has gotten up early in the morning to go jogging!! He must have told me 100 times over how he can't believe he was chosen many times to be the 1st at something in this class, ie he made 1st draft of Silver Phase. Honor Guard, Platoon Sgt.
The Kicker was on day 2 of being home he said to me and I quote, "Mom it feels weird being home. I don't know what to do with myself". He kept saying if I were at the challenge I'd be doing this or that. The structured environment the Challenge provides is working very well for him!!
Well tomorrow I give my child back to the Challenge and I will rest easy because next to home I know he is in GREAT hands! Thank you challenge for all you are doing for my child and all the youth in the program...YOU ALL ROCK!!
What does being put on Fast Track mean?
Good to see Commonwealth Challenge youth group Academy doing what no other for its Country and not what your country can do for you i appreciate all in all beginn the center none end ending future thank God for it Forefathers build this country on the very stuff Amen
