Students with Teacher

TCP prides itself on the relationships we have with educators in all of our participating schools, and we look forward to creating new relationships with educators at future schools. TCP views itself as yet another tool in an educator's toolbox - something that will further assist them in reaching out to a student who may need a little more motivation to get through the year.

When partnering with a school, TCP understands that an educator's day is hectic and demanding and we have tried to create a program that gives each educator the freedom and knowledge to implement it as they see fit. TCP does not involve itself in determining the award recipients - we simply provide suggested guidelines that will assist educators in better understanding the award categories.

Take a look at our video titled Student Introduction to The Challenge Program  in addition to the other pieces in our Photos/Videos gallery. They're a great place to start to learn more about TCP in a nutshell.
