Henry Johnson is a school of uncompromising academic and social expectations with an unrelenting focus on academic achievement and character development. We embrace an educational philosophy of love and hard work coupled with a rigorous curriculum grounded in basic skills, outstanding literature, and moral virtues. HJCS provides a nurturing environment of high expectations and accountability that equips all scholars with the choice to determine their success in life.

Our school will increase what scholars know and can do by changing how they learn, not just what they learn.
