Every second Friday of the month during the school year, the CLC offers a 3-hour hands-on STEAM program for students in home school. Join us for a fun-filled morning, learning new skills and discovering new interests!
For the safety of our students, customers, and staff and to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the Challenger Learning Center requires all students attending Homeschool Day programs to wear face masks. Parents may opt out of this mandatory mask mandate by completing an “opt out” form at the sign-in desk the day of the program. Medical documentation is not required to opt out.
