Hello Prospective Families!


Thank you for your interest in Kennedy Primary Academy. Kennedy Primary Academy is designed to offer academic challenges beyond those required by Indiana Academic Standards to highly capable kindergarten through 5th-grade students. The Academy provides a stimulating educational environment. Students participate in both guided and self-directed exploration across subject areas with emphasis in the sciences and mathematics. The Academy is available to all primary children who meet the criteria for admission.
