I recently graduated from KCA and can't tell you how well this school prepared me for college! Because of the challenging nature of my high school coursework, I'm currently excelling in all of my college classes. Not only did KCA prepare me academically but they taught me how to study and take notes. (Invaluable!) I had several wonderful teachers who truly believed I could succeed. They invested their own personal time to ensuring I understood what we were covering in class - and they always made themselves available before and after school for students who needed additional help. I'm so thankful that my parents were able to send me to KCA!

Hands down, the best school in St. Mary's County. We transferred from another state and were looking for a school that would continue to challenge our kids. After checking out all the local public and private options, the choice was clear -- KCA was the best around. Not only is my high schooler taking advanced courses -- he's getting college credit for them as well since KCA has a relationship with Cairn University. Awesome. He'll probably have a lot of his freshman year in college done by the time he graduates from KCA! He's also involved in soccer and track -- and getting plenty of experience with both. Great coaches and top notch teachers. So glad we found KCA!

How Diverse Are Private Schools?
Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
