Over 90% of our graduates in the last ten years have enrolled in colleges and universities across the country. KCA combines academic excellence with authentic spiritual growth and diverse extracurricular offerings, including athletics, fine arts, and STEM, to equip each student with the tools they need to make a positive impact in the world and ensure they are ready for higher education and more.
THE HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE
KCA has an excellent High School educational program taught by a talented and dedicated faculty. The high school experience of today is filled with more pressure, more competition, and higher expectations than ever before. Knowing this, we double our efforts to support and cultivate character in all KCA students.
Students are challenged to work hard academically, to grow in their faith and personal relationship with God, and to make positive contributions to the school through academic excellence, involvement in leadership opportunities, service projects, athletics, and fine arts. With caring adults who hold high standards for students in every area of school life, the Upper School provides a unique environment for students to learn and grow during their high school years.
PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE
Your student’s high school years are a special time in his or her life—a time of academic and personal challenge and a time to make important decisions about his or her future plans. KCA offers a wide range of academic classes, including several honors courses through which students can receive college credit along with a variety of college preparatory electives.
KCA takes our academic responsibilities seriously and offers an outstanding curriculum. But more importantly, it is our responsibility to prepare our students for life beyond the classroom. Many of our graduates receive highly coveted scholarships to universities and colleges across the country for academics, sports, and fine arts, and some have even received full scholarships. We also seek to help our students attain internships, enroll in trade schools, and establish basic life skills. Our guidance counselors provide a rich range of events appropriate to different grade levels and are designed to promote academic success. We work individually with students on college admissions and other post-high school graduation programs.
Your student receives valuable information and resources in the following areas:
Colleges & universities
