Raider Up!

August 10-19, 2020

Raider School is designed to give young men and women in grades 7-12 the opportunity to expand their knowledge, enhance self-confidence and develop themselves both individually and as a member of a team. The Raider experience will allow them to stretch their physical, emotional and mental limits by operating outside their normal comfort zone. We believe there is no such thing as tough. You are either trained or untrained.

Raider School affords cadets in grades 9-12 the opportunity to be highly competitive both regionally and at the national level among hundreds of other programs. Cadets who earn a place on the competing team will have opportunities to travel all over the country for the Raider Challenge. Non-SJNMA participants will be better qualified for their school’s Raiders Challenge team.
