School Notes

  • School Wide Goals
  • KCA wishes to achieve the following goals in the life of each student who attends. These goals support our mission statement, and our success as a school will be determined by how well these goals are realized in the life of each student. KCA seeks to minister to the needs of the whole child and to encourage his spiritual and moral growth, academic and intellectual progress, and social and physical development. 
  • Spiritual Goals
  • To give Jesus Christ the preeminence in all school matters (Colossians 1:17-18).To see each student who attends KCA accept Jesus Christ as personal Savior (2 Peter 3:9; Romans 10:14-15, 17). Evangelization will be carried out by teachers when the subject of the Gospel (the Good News of salvation from sins through the sacrificial death of Jesus) comes up in class, or on a one-to-one basis when appropriate.To be an extension of the Christian home and church, and thus provide continuity of training for Christian young people (Deuteronomy 6:5-9; Ephesians 6:4).To develop within each student a spiritual knowledge base founded on God`s Word, the Bible, for making wise decisions about life, and to teach accurate Bible doctrine (2 Timothy 3:14-17). See KCA`s Statement of Faith.To help students develop a love for God that extends to the entirety of their hearts, souls, and minds (Deuteronomy 6:5).To teach students the responsibility that every person has to God as Creator and Redeemer (2 Corinthians 5:10).To help students develop a strong sense of "right and wrong," to make each student aware of the spiritual blessing that comes from doing right, and to warn each student of the many wrongs that now characterize our culture and the negative consequences to be borne by those who choose those wrongs (Exodus 20:1-17; Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23).To develop a Christian worldview in the minds of all students. With this worldview in place, students should be able to discern between truth and error. Not only is it our goal to present truth but also to instruct our students how to apply the truth correctly in their own lives (Psalm 19:14; 2 Corinthians 10:4-6).To help students continue their walk with the Lord outside of school and for life through regular Bible reading and prayer (Proverbs 22:6; 1 Thessalonians 5:17).To encourage students to take an active part in the ministry of the local church, including the evangelization of the lost (Hebrews 10:24-25; Acts 1:8).  
  • Academic Goals
  • To provide both curricular and instructional systems that will enable any student to achieve at levels that will prepare him to enter the next level of education chosen, whatever the academic rigor demanded.To instill in each student a strong sense of personal responsibility in the academic realm. This includes a willingness to accept correction, but also the confidence and self-worth to work hard and to pursue the highest possible levels of achievement (Proverbs 12:1; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 12:1).To enable students to become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners (Proverbs 4:13). To teach students to enjoy reading and to utilize oral and written English to communicate effectively.To help students understand fundamental math concepts and processes, as well as practical applications.To give students a broad understanding of history, geography, and the other social studies (Deuteronomy 6:12; Deuteronomy 8:2; Joshua 4).To teach students scientific knowledge about the physical universe God has created (Genesis 1-2; Psalm 19:1-4).To teach students the value of diligent study of the Bible (2 Timothy 3:14-17).To help students develop an appreciation of music and the arts (Psalm 150).To teach students basic usages of computer technology.To give students basic exposure to at least one foreign language (Acts 2:4, 6-8).To teach students about the human body and to teach them to maintain the good health of their bodies (1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 1 Timothy 4:8). 
  • Social Goals
  • To teach each student to love his neighbor as himself (Leviticus 19:18; Matthew 19:19).To cultivate an environment of positive peer influence (Psalm 1:1; Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; 2 Corinthians 6:14-15).To teach students to exhibit a strong work ethic (Proverbs 21:25; 24:30-34; Colossians 3:23; 1 Thessalonians 2:9; 2 Thessalonians 3:10).To develop in students decision-making, planning, and management skills needed for sound judgments and personal problem-solving (Proverbs 16:3; Matthew 25:14-30).To help students understand and accept their responsibilities as citizens of the United States of America, to encourage patriotism, and to encourage them to participate in responsible government (Romans 13:1-7; 1 Timothy 2:1-4).To emphasize Christian colleges and Christian careers to the students (1 Timothy 3:1).To encourage students to make choices beyond high school that will lead to the further development of their gifts, abilities, knowledge, and interests to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31).To instill in each student a strong sense of personal responsibility for their behavior, including a willingness to admit fault and accept correction when necessary (Proverbs 12:1; Hebrews 12:11).To teach students to respond to others and to deal with conflict in a biblical manner (Proverbs 16:28; 21:23; Matthew 18:15-17; Ephesians 4:29). 
  • Physical Goals
  • To teach students to develop habits of neatness, modesty of dress, and good hygiene (1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 1 Timothy 2:9-10; 1 Peter 3:3-4).To encourage students to engage in outdoor play and athletic activities for the betterment of their physical health, to inspire their imaginations, and for the purpose of furthering their social development (1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 1 Timothy 4:8).To teach students the value and nobility of whatever physical work is necessary to be clean, respectful, and industrious members of their community (Proverbs 21:25; 24:30-34; 1 Thessalonians 2:9).

I have been going to Kauai Christian Academy for four years and will be transitioning into my Junior year after summer. Ever since my first day of attendance, the classmates have been friendly; the teachers have been welcoming, and I have felt at home. Throughout my time here I have began to learn things that will not only help me in my further academic career but also in everyday life. This school incorporates Jesus Christ into almost all of the lessons, and I have gained a greater understanding and appreciation for God-to say the least. KCA offers personal one-on-one help that larger populated schools cannot provide. I truly feel that the teachers and principal care about us and our wellbeing. They go out of their ways to give us opportunity's and prepare us for what's to come. I am thankful for my time here and, even after I leave, will treasure it always:)

I grew up on Kauai and attended public school. I had an overall good experience (though a lots changed in 20 years), nothing that ever made me not want to go back to school. Always expected by kids to take the same road. But I know others who had horrible experiences and/or choose to make poor decisions. Public school can be a gamble on shopping your Childs character. We started our daughter in Pre-school at KCA and have kept her into 2nd grade. It's been an amazing experience. The student body from Kindergarten into high school is so well behaved. KCA has created a solid God centered culture supported by great staff and teachers. We have only experienced the teachers up into 2nd grade but the staff just seems to get better and better. Our son is now in pre-school and we look forward to the coming years and the small classroom sizes.
