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.
