At Kelley, we never refer to scholars as "These" or "Those." Instead, we say "OURS."


At Kelley, we will sustain an environment where our children are educated in a safe, loving atmosphere where parents, staff, and the community work together to ensure that our scholars come first.


We will recognize every student as an individual with specific strengths and the potential to grow beyond their adversities.


We will provide an engaging learning experience where our scholars are instructed by highly motivated and qualified teachers and staff instill a caring, capable, and competitive spirit in every scholar.


By the end of 8th grade, our scholars will have the acquired skills, love of learning, and self-confidence in order to excel and be successful in their high school experience.
