About the #KCAcommunity
"Excellence can be attained if you...
care more than others think is wise,
risk more than others think is safe,
dream more than others think is practical,
expect more than others think is possible."
-KCA Founding Principal Martha Fly, Commencement Address, 1995
What makes KCA truly unique is that it is also a community. When a family decides to join our community the benefits are tremendous. In our community students respect each other. When conflict arises, we work together towards resolutions in which we all can grow. In our community students respect teachers and teachers respect students. Students are encouraged to ask questions. Students have the freedom to draw their own conclusions. Nothing inspires mastery of content like being challenged. In our community we support each other. Wallflowers become the life of the party. Everyone is accepted for who they are and encouraged to pursue dreams. Goals are set; goals are met.
Kansas City Academy really is a special place.
Though our community is small, we are always looking for others to join us. We hope you will. What happens here is transformative.
