Henry Johnson Charter School
We believe scholars can achieve academic excellence while developing exceptional character.
Congratulations to our Honor Society Members
The Mission of Henry Johnson Charter School is to ensure that all scholars reach the highest levels of scholastic achievement in an environment that instills character, virtue, and “habits of mind” that ensure success both within and outside the classroom: diligence, courage, respect, self-reliance, duty, and responsibility.
Henry Johnson Charter School is a learning community where every scholar achieves academic excellence while developing exceptional character.
Henry Johnson grew up in Albany, New York, and became a true American hero and an inspiration to all who have come to learn of his extraordinary service and bravery as a soldier in the First World War. He is an example, particularly to young people, of someone who voluntarily served and sacrificed for his country, even as he faced segregation and injustice.
Sergeant Johnson volunteered to serve his country after it entered World War I, becoming a famous member of the New York National Guard’s 369th Infantry Regiment, also known as the “Harlem Hellfighters.”
Our after school program enriches our students with core values.
