The education at KCA goes beyond traditional school and creates an accepting, encouraging, supportive and nurturing community. Academics, community service and Crew (it's like home room, but more) combine to create students who observe, question, create, analyze, and evaluate.
Within the walls of the school, students are empowered to find their voice, encouraged to question, and prepared to shape the future. Students who are eager for a very different school experience meet teachers who are equally eager to open their eyes to a new way of learning.
Outside the walls of KCA, even greater learning happens. A student's education at KCA combines rigorous academic content with active teaching and community service, along with real-world projects.
"Today was my daughter's first day at KCA. It was also the first day she has
ever come home from school happy." ~KCA Parent
