The North Carolina New Schools Project is working. Proof is at Challenger Early College High School, on the campus of Catawba Valley Community College. Challenger is one of 42 institutions in the New Schools project that did not have a single dropout in the previous school year, 2011-12.

More than a third of the 99 schools which NC New Schools helped support last year had no dropouts from any grade, and eight of every 10 of the schools had no dropouts from 9th grade, when students are most susceptible to quitting school.
