STEAM Education for the 21st Century

A Cut Above the Rest!

Don’t just take our word for it. Our tribe of franchise owners says it best!

“I’ve had a number of jobs in corporate America, but I never felt passionate about anything until I found Challenge Island. I have always wanted to give back to my community and this is a perfect vehicle with which to do so. Parents, teachers, administrators and, of course, students love the program and I have been pleasantly surprised by how fast my Challenge Island business has taken off. Within a year, I have generated enough revenue to cover my initial investment. You know when people ask you what you would do if you could do anything? Well this is it! Even if I didn’t need to make a living, I would still want to do Challenge Island.”
Shronda Boatwright, Essex and Passaic Counties, NJ

“With the other franchises I considered, it felt like a business transaction; with Challenge Island, it felt like a family.”
Leah Rise, St. Petersburg, FL

“I didn’t do anything spectacular today except deliver the product that our founder created for us to use! As always, the response from the parents and teachers to my in-school workshop was positive beyond belief. I have owned CI for 2 years now and every time I run a program, it reconfirms what I knew when I first bought the franchise: What we have is so special!”
Michelle Paddenburg, Greenville, SC

“Challenge Island ownership is hands down amazing! The curriculum doesn’t need any extra bells and whistles, it’s unique and exceptional in its own rite. My fan club of parents and kids grows by leaps and bounds every day – everyone wants more CI in their lives! When you believe in something so much, it just flows naturally and those around you can’t help but want a piece of it!”
Erin Vannostrand, White Marsh, MD
