The Challenor Creative Arts & Training Centre

The CCATC is located in a beautiful 400 year old Great House.

Housed in a beautiful 400 year-old house in the highlands of Barbados, the Challenor Creative Arts and Training Centre (CCATC) provides care and education to students of all ages through their two organizational divisions: The Challenor School and Adult Training Facility (ATF).

By teaching essential life skills to children with varying levels of intellectual and physical disabilities as well as adults with mild intellectual disabilities, CCATC provides a unique path to success for everyone, regardless of their level of needed care.


We Need Your Support

Unfortunately, the centre cannot run on kindness alone. The historic house is rapidly deteriorating due to termites, mold, and mildew, and there is insufficient funding to buy the materials necessary to continue providing the highest level of care possible.

With your help, CCATC can keep its doors open and continue providing students with the care they need.

First lady. Mrs. Michelle Obama and music legend Stevie Wonder were among the dignitaries present.

Special mention was made of Olympics athlete (and CCATC student) Leander Brathwaite by ESPN . They spoke of Mr. Brathwaite’s talent as an athlete who competed successfully in track and field, football and cricket, and is now representing Barbados in golf!
