The Maryland Freestate Challenge Academy (FCA) is one of the original 10 state Challenge Programs. FCA is a tuition-free program which offers at-risk adolescents 16 to 18 years old an opportunity to change their future for the better by providing the skills, education and self-discipline needed to become responsible, productive citizens. The initial program consists of a 22-week residential phase. During this phase the cadets learn self-discipline, leadership and responsibility. Participants live and work in a controlled military environment, encouraging teamwork and personal growth. A 12-month post-residential phase focuses on helping enroll graduates in continued education, technical school programs or entry-level employment. During the post-residential phase, students are assisted by at least one trained mentor from the community for further development. Help young Marylanders who want and deserve the opportunity to acquire their GED and a path to a better future. Join and help lead a dynamic team of individuals who have dedicated themselves to helping these young people.
