Finishing high school on your cell phone...
Remember that ChallengeU is aimed at young people aged 16 and over as well as adults who need to learn differently. Allowing students to complete their high school studies online for free, ChallengeU perfectly combines all the human and digital possibilities of individualized learning where each student progresses at his/her own pace on the device of his/her choice (cell phone, tablet, computer), no matter where he/she is. In addition, each student benefits from a teacher dedicated to his/her success through the collaboration of the school boards.
On February 9th, mixed martial arts legend Georges St-Pierre challenged his friend Steve Bégin, a former Montreal Canadiens player, to finish high school with ChallengeU. With only one or two classes missing to graduate, many adults felt challenged. Inspired by Steve's enthusiasm and commitment, they signed up for the platform that allows them to balance family, work and studies like no other solution available in Quebec.
