No other school offers anything this close to the ideal for our daughter. The small student population, open atmosphere, and creative programming are all well-suited to make the most of her experience and needs. Above all it's the KCA philosophy we love – the mutual respect among students and faculty and the integrated educational approach provide a fertile environment to nurture her intellectual, social, and personal growth. Thus grounded, she is empowered to utilize her strengths with confidence and meet her challenges in an atmosphere of trust.

We were amazed by the opportunities for creative synergy at KCA - they offer diverse programs in art(full ceramics studio), music(percussion ensemble,student band), creative writing(student publications), theatre(fall and spring plays) and award-winning student culinary team.

KCA is a small but welcoming community. I love it here because i can go to school knowing that no matter what class I'm in i will be comfortable and included in daily activities.

Kansas City Academy has changed my life. I used to not be able to sit down and write a single word for my homework, and here I am making above average grades as opposed to incredibly below average. The students are open and accepting, the teachers are kind and compassionate to each individual, and the school environment is more than extraordinary. I love it here.

I Love This school because it is very chill and some of the teachers are amazing at what they do. I do learn alot here the academics are just as good as public schools. Most of the people are very accepting of everyone.

An outstanding school with a unique approach to learning. Smaller classes provide students with many opportunities to explore and learn outside the school room. The students learn critical thinking and analysis of subjects instead of merely memorizing facts. I highly recommend Kansas City Academy for any student who would prefer a smaller school.

My middle school son has never been so happy or absorbed in learning. He is learning important critical thinking skills instead of memorizing facts. The faculty and staff are a team of talented educators who work hard to build a strong school culture and it shows in the students behavior -- they are accepting, kind and supportive of each other. Visit this school. You'll be so impressed.
