We have two children enrolled at SKCA and could not be any happier! They receive a well-rounded education in an extremely warm and nurturing environment. The principal, teachers, and staff are dedicated and compassionate. Our children are flourishing. We love the active parent community, beautiful facility, rigorous curriculum, and opportunities for children to find their voice. Students receive instruction in Spanish, art, music, and physical education, and receive time in the science lab in addition to the core subjects. There is a drama club, kickball club, and other events and opportunities for fun outside of the classroom. The parish has a CYO, and children can play sports alongside their classmates. SKCA even has a SEPTA (Special Education Parent Teacher Association).

I am a St Kevin alumni, but a public school teacher, so at first it was a hard decision to make about where to send my older son to school when he was approaching school age. My husband is also a catholic school alumnus who believes in the values of catholic schooling as well as the friendships made through school and the extracurricular that the catholic youth guild provides. Together, we decided to send our first son to SKCA and it has been a great decision that I won`t regret. Hence, his little brother followed right behind. Our older son is currently in 6th grade and started there in Pre-K. The middle school has been amazing. Very up-to-date on technology and excellent preparation for high school. My younger son is in 2nd grade and also have a wonderful experience since pre-k. The science lab at SKCA is expansive. The teachers have been very caring and excellent at enriching their academic education. The classrooms have technology such as Smartboards, Chromebooks, and IPads which excite my tech-savvy kids! The curriculum and programs match or are similar to the ones I teach in the public school system and some are even better, in my opinion. I appreciate that the school values the learning of a foreign language in the young years. The Academy has encouraged creativity in art as well as instilled good morals and values through religion classes and church time. It is great to be able to celebrate Christmas with the students at all of the events, fundraisers, and the amazing Christmas Concert (and Spring concert), led by the talented music teacher. Every holiday, both religious and national, as well as multiculturalism is not only recognized but celebrated in many ways and the children enjoy these celebrations. The Academy Parent Association (APA) is exceptional and focused on parent communication and student/family collaboration and fun! I highly recommend SKCA if you`re looking for a fun, safe, loving, and enriching learning environment for your child.
