We are North Carolina Free Charter School focused on excellence.
ESSIE MAE KISER FOXX CHARTER SCHOOL, also known as “Essie’s School,” is named for the late Essie Mae Kiser Foxx, a prominent community leader in East Spencer, NC. Essie’s School is a community-centric school of choice— a free public school — that opened in August 2018 for grades kindergarten through four. It will add a grade each year until reaching grade 8 and becoming a K-8 school. We will enroll of 150 students on a first-come, first-serve basis. If the school receives more than 150 applicants, decisions on final slots will be determined by a lottery.
