Parent Experience: Ms. Catina Lamb
Cadet Jacob Ready and I heard about this program from his NJROTC teacher at Aiken High school. Jacob had been having a lot of problems the past year skipping school and not doing his work. He had been getting into trouble at home as well. My family went everywhere trying to get my son help. We went to visit South Carolina Youth Challenge Academy and I thought this is the place for my son. I did not want him to end up at DJJ. I am glad my son decided to take the Challenge and attend this academy. Jacob came home on February 28, 2014 for the first time since January 6, 2014. I could really can see a change in him for the better. We visited his old school and his teachers did not even recognize him. I know he’s got a little ways to go, I thank you all for everything that you all are doing for these boys and girls. I would recommend this place to anyone. I can say I’m a proud mom.
