CPS is going to move Kenwood Academy program into a closed school; the Canter Middle School building.
Located 40 yards away from Kenwood Academy at 4959 S. Blackstone, the Canter Middle School will host Junior High School students (7th and 8th graders). By doing so, it will leave 250 more seats for students who want to attend a high-quality neighborhood high school like Kenwood. With the program leaving Kenwood, more students will have the chance to attend the high school.
In order for this plan to succeed, the community has to come together to propose the expansion to the vacant Canter Middle School building.
