Age Requirements for CC Programs

The Foundations Program
The Foundations Program has been created for students between the ages of 4 to 12. Students who are present on site with their family, and are age 4 by June 1st or older, must be enrolled in a Foundations Program.  At this age they would no longer attend the nursery if a community has one.   If the student turns 12 by September 30th and is entering the 7th grade they would enroll in the Challenge A program.                             

The Essentials Program
The age of enrollment for the Essentials Program is age nine (by September 30 th) and older.   Students may be enrolled in Essentials only or both Foundations and Essentials. If the student turns 12 by September 30th and is entering the 7th grade they would enroll in the Challenge A program.

Because of the dialectic and rigorous nature of the Challenge level and the material that is covered in the upper levels, we want students to have the social, mental, and spiritual maturity to appropriately handle the material that is covered. Please understand that we have this age restriction in place to benefit students and families, not to hold anyone back. 

Please contact your director or other field leader if you have any other questions regarding the age requirements.
