Each year, South Shore Charter Public School holds a community event to celebrate the start of a new school year. Join us this September 2024 for our Annual Road Race to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of SSCPS!

As one of the oldest charter schools in Massachusetts, South Shore Charter Public School has been a model of growth and progress over the past three decades. Each step of our evolution echoes the dedication of our founders and the unwavering support of our community. This year, we’re able to honor that evolution and look back on the considerable progress we’ve made as an institution, and as a community, for the last 30 years.

Equally important as our remembrance of our journey so far is also knowing that our journey is far from over. With your continued support, we can propel SSCPS to even greater heights, honoring the dreams of our founders and shaping a brighter future for generations to come. Come support our school community and celebrate 30 years of SSCPS by participating in the 2024 Annual Road Race!

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

The 2024 Annual Road Race will be held on Saturday, September 28th, 2024 at Wompatuck State Park. The race will begin at 9:30AM.
