Each year, South Shore Charter Public School holds a community event to celebrate the start of a new school year. This year's 5K road race (formally known as the Harvest Run) will be fundraising to improve outdoor learning space and enhance campus facilities to support the overall growth of SSCPS, both physical and academic – get ready to Race for Space!

The South Shore Charter Public School has been consistently growing in a number of ways, from more than doubling our student population to expanding our campus from one to three buildings. Our dreams for our school’s future have grown along with us, and we’re determined to continue improving our campus for our student body, faculty, and community as a whole–but we need your help! 

The 2023 Race for Space at SSCPS will gather support from our community in order to improve outdoor learning space and enhance campus facilities to support the overall growth of the South Shore Charter Public School. We are proud of our school and the support we receive from you as we live our mission of inspiring every student to excel in academics, service, and life.

This event is being organized by the South Shore Charter Educational Foundation on behalf of SSCPS. 100% of the proceeds from the 2023 Race for Space 5K will go toward the Foundation.

Date and Time

Please join us Saturday, September 30th, 2023 from 9:00am - 10:30am at Wompatuck State Park for the Race for Space 5K. Bring your families and celebrate the SSCPS community with a morning filled with music, food, friends and fun!
