A new educational option that launched last year in Jersey City will be moving to a state-of-the-art facility for the upcoming school year inside a historic building near a transit hub.

Kindle Education Public Charter School recently announced their pending relocation to a new space at 35 Journal Square Plaza in Jersey City. Phelps Construction Group is managing the build-out of the building’s third floor, which was designed by KSS Architects.

Construction is currently underway at the tuition-free school, ensuring the customized educational environment for Kindle Education’s growing community will be finished in time for the start of the 2024-2025 school year.

“We are excited to move to our new home in Journal Square,” said DJ Hartigan, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Kindle Education. “This facility will allow us to better serve our diverse student body with the high-quality, hands-on education we are known for. The space has been thoughtfully designed to support our holistic and project-based learning model, providing our students with the resources they need to thrive.”

Kindle Education opened its doors this past fall on Communipaw Avenue with 66 sixth-grade students. As the school expands to include 7th grade next year, the new facility will support an increased enrollment of 132 students.

Kindle Education’s mission is to cultivate an equitable community of purposeful individuals who are prepared to navigate the current world and build the future. In addition to recruiting new students, Kindle Education is seeking educators to join its team for the upcoming school year.

“We believe in the power of education to transform lives,” added Katie Hahn, Co-Founder and Co-CEO. “Our new facility at 35 Journal Square Plaza represents our commitment to providing an environment where students can develop into self-directed learners, critical thinkers, and compassionate citizens.”
