Kingswood Academy supports parents in their role as primary educators of their children.
We educate the whole child, developing not only the intellectual capacities of our students, but also the moral, spiritual, and physical aspects as well.
Kingswood Academy is a Catholic grade school servicing grades PreK through 8. We offer full and half day PreK and full day Kindergarten. We are in the Diocese of Joliet and recognized as a Catholic school but Kingswood Academy is an independant school.
Kingswood Academy teaches a Classical Curriculum. We do not teach or follow Common Core. Our students are challenged not only in their education but in their spiritual lives. Please schedule a private tour of our school at any time or join us for an open house. We would be happy to show you why Kingswood is a an asset in the education of your child.
