Hands down, the best school in St. Mary's County. We transferred from another state and were looking for a school that would continue to challenge our kids. After checking out all the local public and private options, the choice was clear -- KCA was the best around. Not only is my high schooler taking advanced courses -- he's getting college credit for them as well since KCA has a relationship with Cairn University. Awesome. He'll probably have a lot of his freshman year in college done by the time he graduates from KCA! He's also involved in soccer and track -- and getting plenty of experience with both. Great coaches and top notch teachers. So glad we found KCA!

This is a fantastic school. We tried the public schools and they simply didn't challenge our child enough. KCA is highly academic, yet they offer many of the "extras" that are being cut from a lot of the public programs. Music, computer, art, physical education, robotics...these are a part of my student's schedule every week in addition to the basics of science, language, math, reading, writing, social studies, etc. We know that KCA is providing a solid foundation for our child as she moves into their high school next year.
