Kennedy is part of the Downcounty Consortium (DCC). Students who reside within the DCC boundaries participate in the Choice process. Students and parents rank their preferred high schools for school assignment and are assigned to one of 5 high schools via lottery: Montgomery Blair, Albert Einstein, John F. Kennedy, Northwood or Wheaton. The DCC website describes programs at the five schools and the Choice process.
Kennedy's academies include a planned International Baccalaureate (IB) program, MediaCom: Multimedia and Telecommunications, Tri-M: Medical Careers, Sports Medicine and Sports Management, Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC), the Leadership Training Institute (an application-only program), and the College Institute. The academies emphasize critical thinking and problem-solving skills and provide students numerous opportunities for real-world exploration and application.
