Rachel’s Challenge

Students, Faculty and Staff-

In the past 24 months, 500 teen suicides and 7 school shootings averted nationally because of Rachel’s Challenge.

Rachel’s Challenge is one of the largest school based character development programs in the nation with over 2,200 schools experiencing Rachel’s Challenge last year alone. Based on the life and writing of Rachel Joy Scott who was the first victim of the Columbine school shooting tragedy in 1999, Rachel’s Challenge was created to equip and inspire students to replace acts of violence, bullying, and negativity with acts of respect, kindness, and compassion.
