Battle Born Youth ChalleNGe Academy

At Battle Born Youth ChalleNGe Academy, we aim to help our nation’s youth improve their life skills and their employment potential. As part of the Elko County School District in Elko, Nevada, youth ages 16–18 who have dropped out of high school may apply to our program. Through our military-based training, at-risk youth work diligently to significantly improve their life skills and employment potential.

A Message from Our Principal

Dear Families,

It is an honor to be the principal of Battle Born Youth ChalleNGe Academy. At BBYCA, we’re proud of our students and their accomplishments. Our dedicated staff members work hard every day to bring the best learning opportunities possible to our student body.

We understand the emotional toll on families when leaving your loved one with us at the Academy; 22 weeks can feel like a lifetime. To ease the transition, we encourage you to visit this website often. I pledge to keep it current with news and photos so you always know what’s going on at BBYCA.


Mr. McAnany
