Challenge Success

Challenge Success is an organization founded at Stanford University that provides information and strategies to schools and families to help promote a better-balanced student both personally and academically.  We highly encourage you to visit their website to learn more! 
"Everything we do is grounded in research, from our survey tools developed by Stanford researchers to the articles we publish and the strategies we share with schools and families. We conduct and review recent research in order to provide the most up-to-date insights for our schools, families, and students." 
"Success is measured over the course of a lifetime, not at the end of a semester.”
