Citizens of the World Charter Schools 

Our mission is to impact and expand the conversation about what an excellent education contains, requires and accomplishes.

Citizens of the World schools challenge students to develop their full potential and thrive in a diverse society. We are tuition-free schools open to all, committed to serving diverse communities in Kansas City. We develop sophisticated thinkers who master content and have a courageous and compassionate sense of responsibility for themselves and all people. Our schools are in strong demand: In 2015, we had 10 times more interest than space.

Our classrooms are challenging – and joyful – learning environments that engage children through fun projects tailored to their personal experiences, strengths, and needs. Our teachers take the time to get to know each child as an individual. We empower children to think critically and learn to engage respectfully and productively with fellow students by developing their capacity to enter into and understand the lives of others. Our goal is for student “success” to include mastery of both content and emotions so that students can meaningfully connect with each other, be part of any community, and courageously decide who they are in the world and how they want the world to be. 


“We have learned that we cannot live alone, at peace, that our own well-being is dependent on the well-being of nations far away… We have learned to be citizens of the world, members of the human community.”

–Franklin Delano Roosevelt

A true school community is one in which all members - students, teachers, families, and community partners - not only have the opportunity to participate but also feel welcome to actively engage in school life - Get involved today:

Our Vision

When KC Girls Prep welcomes its first students in Fall 2019, it will become the first single-gender, an open-enrollment charter public school in Kansas City.

KC Girls Prep will serve young women from across the Kansas City Public School boundaries. The school will enroll 100 fifth graders in its first year and grow one grade per year to form a 5-8 middle school and 9-12 high school. 

KC Girls Prep will foster a strong sense of community and a rigorous, college-bound academic culture.
