Who is the Challenge Academy?
The Wisconsin Challenge Academy is an alternative education program designed to reclaim the lives of at-risk youth and produce graduates with the values, skills, education and self-discipline necessary to succeed as adults. The program is run out of Ft. McCoy and typically houses 1–4 squads of at risk youth. Each squad consists of about 30 students. They love to do community service projects to get outside, such as working with us on habitat restoration projects.
