High School History Teacher

Henderson Collegiate

About the organization

Henderson Collegiate is a mission-driven public college preparatory school located in rural Henderson, NC with an unrelenting focus on character development and student achievement.

Our school serves students that come from traditionally underserved communities (approximately 85% receive free or reduced lunch, and about 90% are students of color). However, we consistently rank in the top 4% of all North Carolina Public Schools.

At Henderson Collegiate, we believe in 51% character and 49% academics, as we will never sacrifice a moment to teach our students character traits that will help them become great people.

We are both a team and family who leverage passionate people to be the best teachers and leaders that they can be. We work beside each other to make what most people say is impossible, happen.
