Elon Homes and Schools for Children, Inc. (EHSC), was pleased to be granted one of the first North Carolina Department of Public Instruction official Charter Public School certifications in 1997. Our intent for the school - named the Kennedy Charter Public School, Inc. in memory of Fred J. Kennedy, founder of Boy's Town of Charlotte - was to educate at-risk or otherwise disadvantaged youth in our care as well as students from across the community. The school has grown dramatically since that time, and with it, so has our academic rigor and educational results.
With the addition of Kennedy Charter's elementary program in 2009, we began offering early educational attention to K-1 students. That program, too, has grown steadily as word has spread about the academic impact our small class sizes and expert instruction is yielding for our students.
Today Kennedy Charter Public School is poised to offer K-12 education, a unique scenario in the Charlotte area. Our extended school day, extraordinary school leadership, small class sizes, innovative teaching practices, free transportation, new academic facility and compassionate staff make us unique among schools in the Charlotte area.
Research shows that a student who graduates with a high school diploma has significantly better chances for success in life relative to employment, relationships, personal development, health and decision making. To this end we work with every student in every grade to help him or her, in every way, be successful at our school.
Kennedy Charter Public School, Inc. faculty, staff, students and families welcome you to our website!
