I attended Koinonia for 13 years and now my daughters attend there. We have nothing but good things to say about KA. We are so blessed to have our children in an environment which has a healthy balance of academics and character and faith development. All of the teachers are wonderful as well.

KOINONIA has been a wonderful blessing. We love the school and especially the sports program with 2 championships! I especially love that every kid gets to play from gr 3 to HS. KA is a truly special school

The sports program has really been growing! We went to the State Championships for the first time this year. We have been going to Championships for 3 years in Middle School. Sports begin in 3rd grade, and the coaches are wonderful and caring. What I like most is that the coaches encourage all of the kids. There are no real "tryouts." Most of the kids get many chances to play, and still we have a winning record. My son has been playing for 3 years, and loves it. Great program!

This school is an amazing place where I''ve seen my children be challenged and encouraged to be the best person in their character and student academically that they can be!

We love Koinonia. I have two children currently enrolled in kindergarten and 3rd grade. The class sizes are small and the teachers truly care about the students. The Catholic part of their education is real and not watered down. This school also does not use common core. We have no complaints about KA! Highly highly recommended for anyone looking for an affordable authentic Catholic education.
