Transforming Lives Through Education and Exploration
At Jennings Community School, we believe in supporting the whole student, building meaningful relationships, and honoring students for who they are. With our unique approach to education, we have been empowering students to set and reach personal and academic goals, make healthy life choices, and continue learning beyond the classroom for the over 20 years.
At Jennings, we believe in the brilliance of every student. Our program is designed to honor the unique interests, identities, and needs of each student.
At Jennings, we believe in the power of community, both within and beyond our doors.

Explore the World Through Education
The Jennings model includes yearly trips, organized and helped paid for by students through fundraising. Past trips have included study in Ghana, Costa Rica, as well as trips throughout the United States. Students have also traveled to San Francisco, Hawaii, New Orleans, New York, and St. Louis studying a range of topics from abolition to saltwater ecology, police brutality to theater.
Unlock Your Full Potential
Jennings students tackle projects that deal with issues from a local level to a global level. We begin with awareness through research, making connections, visiting community experts, all with the intention of arriving at a place where students can become empowered to act. Actions have ranged from spreading awareness to advocating for new legislation with congressmen and women.
You Matter Now
At Jennings, we believe education should and must be relevant to our students' lives - that's why we place so much emphasis on real-world experiences like work-based learning, experiential education, service learning, and community involvement.
