Frequently Asked Questions
When is the application deadline for Koinonia Academy?
The application deadline for Koinonia Academy is rolling (applications are reviewed as they are received year-round).
My daughter currently attends Koinonia Academy, and I couldn't be more pleased with the school. I chose Koinonia because it was important to me that my child attends a school that supports and encourages our religious beliefs. There are many schools in the area that I could have sent her to, but there is no other school like KA when it comes to teaching the faith: mass, rosary, adoration, and praise and worship every week, plus teachers who are living their faith and pass it on in a classroom setting. In addition, the school has changed its education style to a classical curriculum. The quality of this education far surpasses anything that I have seen in the public school education my older children received for 5 years (they are currently home-schooled), and I was pleased with that education as well. Learning comes alive for these children in Medieval Feasts, multi-grade battle re-enactments, Roman marches, gingerbread Castle construction complete with chapel, keep, and great hall, formal debates on relevant topics moderated by well-known professionals, and more. If you're looking for a great school that educates both mind and spirit, look no further. KA stands alone in this area and will provide your child with a wonderful community in which to grow and develop into the person God has created him/her to be. Welcome home!
All seven of my children have graduated from Koinonia. The teachers go above and beyond for every student, offering both challenging academics and lovingly accommodating special needs. A few of my grown children have returned there to be teachers after college because they wanted to 'give back'. KA provides an environment that fosters strong faith and character, and has been a tremendous support to us in raising our children in the Catholic faith. Amazing Classical curriculum! ...and a great sports program too!
I love KA, the people there are fun and amazing. My teachers are the best they really care about us, students. I love charismatic it's one of my favorite parts. Being able to play basketball with my friends and making it to the finals was really huge and our school celebrated our team even though we got second. KA is truly the best school you can send your kids. :)
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
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.
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!
