Welcome to Al Kennedy High School, a school serving approximately 90 students in grades 9 through 12, and post-secondary level.  Al Kennedy High Schol, founded in 1998 by forestry teacher and outdoor adventurer Al Kennedy, has a tradition of outdoor adventure, academic excellence, a dedicated faculty, and a history of educating young people to find their place in the community and the world.

Al Kennedy teaches students from all walks of life to:

  • Think, discuss, question and analyze
  • Combine knowledge with goodness
  • Acquire the intellectual skills that ensure a love of learning and a lifelong commitment to helping others

An Al Kennedy education prepares students to use the skills learned at school in all life's endeavors.  It can be a life-changing experience, challenging and fun. It asks a great deal from every student - higher standards, greater expectations, and deeper engagement not only in the world of ideas, but also in the life of the community.
