Wyoming Cowboy Challenge Academy is open and currently accepting students

CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Cowboy Challenge Academy is open for business. The academy, located in Guernsey, is celebrating its 15th year in operation.

The school for at-risk teenagers was among many programs being considered for closure amid projected state budgetary shortfalls earlier this year.

The academy, overseen by the Wyoming Military Department, instead took a 20% budgetary cut in step with all Wyoming public schools.

The Wyoming Cowboy Challenge Academy is a fully-accredited residential school which specializes in helping young people meet their academic goals by eliminating negative distractions and instilling self-discipline, confidence and respect for others.

The school is now accepting students for its 44th class, which begins July 12. For more information, contact the academy at 307-836-7500 or visit them online at http://wycowboychallenge.org.
