Testimonials and Resources

Families and teachers share what they love about Champions!

For students, thriving in times of rapid change means being able to adapt, to reimagine how things work, to have the resilience to try—and then try again. Kids are just born this way. And Champions is a safe place to nurture that natural curiosity and creativity, so students are ready to rise to their next challenge.

Champions extended-day learning environments support your school’s unique schedule, so families always have a reliable place for their kids to go and schools gain a partner in educating the next generation of doers and thinkers.

But don’t take our word for it. Hear directly from families, schools, and Champions teachers on what they love about our programs!
