  • Oregon National Guard Youth Challenge Program
    The Oregon National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program is an Alternative High School. It is a residential school where cadets (students) live on site for 5 months while attending the military model school. This period is followed by a mandatory 12 month mentor phase back in the community. Eligible individuals are accepted from all 36 counties in Oregon. The school is a non-traditional model that operates similar to a military academy. The program is guided by military principles, structure and discipline. Staff utilize a "Hands Off", tough love, caring, disciplined approach to instill values, train, and instruct cadets. Students are eligible to earn a high school diploma, GED or credit recovery of 8 certified credits if they complete the required class work. The school is accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission, approved by the Oregon Department of Education, and an approved sponsor for the National School Lunch Program, providing meals to students at no cost. The school is not easy...but it is rewarding.
