FCPS welcomes initial applicants for Carter G. Woodson Prep

Fayette County Public Schools plans to launch the Carter G. Woodson Preparatory Academy in the fall of 2021-22, and the application window will open Jan. 18 through midnight Feb. 1. The STEM-focused curriculum (science, technology, engineering, and math) will be taught through the lens of African-American history, culture, and culturally responsive teaching and learning strategies. This new school, which will first be housed in the renovated and historic Johnson Elementary building on Sixth Street, will initially admit 150 boys in grades K-2, adding a level each year through fifth grade.
