Program Description


The best way for a 9th-12th grade girl to grow in her faith is to have her lead and share her faith.  Challenge High School Program is just that.  Made to respond to the needs and questions of a high school girl, the curriculum centers around virtues and projects where the girls can work together to make a difference.  It consists of 3 series of curriculum.  Each series is made up of 4 team leader guidebooks with 31 weeks of curriculum.  Each guidebook is built around the apostolic service project and offers specific opportunities to live faith in their daily reality.  Let your high school girls take up the challenge of being Christian leaders who transform the world around them.

High School Curriculum


Virtue Centered

Our curriculum is virtue-centered.  A virtue is “an interior disposition, a positive habit, a passion that has been placed at the service of the good.  That means that we must change on our way to God”  (Youcat 299)  Most of the our spiritual life and living of faith is God’s action, what we can do from our side is respond by good actions, actions that repeated enough times become a habit.  This creates a positive inner space in our hearts for us to develop our friendship with God.  This good habit or good inner disposition is what we call virtue.  Then there are “superpower” virtues that God gives as gifts too.  Kids today need to see virtue modeled and who better to set an example than the saints!  Each guidebook of curriculum centers around a virtue.  Virtue is the beauty of a girl. 

Service Driven

Our curriculum is service driven.  Each guidebook is built around a service project with each of the weekly meeting offering content to help form the missionary disciple, a young Catholic leader, in carrying out this project.  Mission can awaken and maximize the heart of a young woman for good, to receive and care for the other and embark on an adventure worthy of taking on any challenge! 


Our curriculum responds to the needs of the adolescent.  It is based off of questions that reveal the deeper needs of the adolescent.  Each session strives to awaken the question through experiences, respond to them and help them make faith life!

Each curriculum set includes 3 books. Each book includes 5 weeks of curriculum, one main virtue, and one service project. The Advent / Lent book can be added to all curriculum sets to give you 8 more weeks of meetings and two more service projects. All books have lots of material downloads available from the online resource center.
