|The mission of the Mountaineer ChalleNGe Academy is to train and mentor selected at-risk youth to become contributing members of society using the 8 Core Components in a quasi-military environment during a 22-week residential and one year follow-up program.
The Mountaineer ChalleNGe Academy uses 8 Core Components in a quasi-military environment during the 22- week residential and one year post-residential phases of the program. Quasi-military is a term used to describe the program because it resembles military training. Our structured environment includes many aspects related to military training such as paying attention to detail, respect, self-discipline and a chain of command.
Leadership/Followership: Cadets gain the skills necessary to be a good follower, a valued member of society and gain exposure to good leadership traits. Quasi-military activities are part of everyday life. Color Guard, Drill and Ceremony and Drill Competition are practiced. Also included in this curriculum are Character Development, Platoon Olympics and Cadet Leadership positions. All Cadets attending the Academy learn the value of teamwork.
Physical Training: Cadets participate in a program of physical fitness training which encourages a lifelong commitment to physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Activities include, but are not limited to, aerobics, one-mile runs and organized athletics. Proper conditioning and health issues are integrated through individual and team competitions. All Cadets participate in the President's Council on Physical Fitness Program while attending the Academy.
Educational Excellence: Cadets work to enhance their educational skills and self esteem. Studies include the five basic areas included on the General Educational Development (GED) certificate test: math, science, social studies, language arts and literature. Traditional classroom activities and computer assisted learning are used to enhance basic skills. Individual and group projects allow for personal advancement and the practical application of new skills.
