Students at Nazareth Prep were recently introduced to The Challenge Program, Inc. during a kick-off assembly at their school. The assembly theme was an Olympic trial that demonstrated the interview screening process to help students Qualify for Success.

Throughout the year, they will be eligible to compete for financial awards in five areas linked with academic and workplace success: Attendance, Academic Improvement, Academic Excellence, STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) and Community Service. Fragasso Financial Advisors is this school’s business partner for 2016/2017.
