Our program exalts Christ as the Source of life
Staff members are born-again Christians who choose to
honor God in all they do. Children are taught biblical
principals throughout the curriculum, as well as through
interactions with staff members who model behaviors
that are pleasing to God. Children learn by what
they see and experience each day. Staff members exhibit
God's love through their lives by showing love to others,
being kind, compassionate, understanding and
accepting of both children and adults, alike.
Each child is a wonderous, unique individual
created by God.
Our desire is that the children come to know
how much God loves them all of the time.
We believe that children learn best through hands-on,
play-oriented activities. For children to become
successful learners, they must be given opportunities
to think independently, problem solve, and cooperate
with adults and other children. Through interaction
and observation of their environment,
children gain abilities that enable them to develop
physically, socially, emotionally, creatively, cognitively
The learning environment at KCA is set up in ways that
encourage children to explore, experiment and discover
as they interact with other people, materials and
the world around them. Safe, secure children feel
comfortable to freely express themselves. They are
encouraged to do so in an appropriate manner.
Children need to learn from experiences so they
can construct meaning and learn and grow
at their own rate. Each child is an individual
and should be regarded as lovable and
capable of learning.
Our children spend the majority of their young lives in the classroom. Many Christian parents take advantage of the opportunities offered by a Christian school to help train their child up in the way that he or she should go (Proverbs 22:6).
It is exciting to know that there are 923 Assemblies of God/Association of Christian Teachers and Schools (ACTS) sponsored day schools and childcare centers within the United States. Christian teachers have approximately 1260 instructional contact hours per year in a day school and over 2,000 in a childcare center. This allows a tremendous amount of direct Christian discipleship and evangelism to occur in this school system.
Private education accounts for 118,296 students within Assemblies of God/ACTS schools. According to the most current statistics from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), approximately 10% of all U.S. students are educated in private schools. Between now and 2014, the number of students in private schools is expected to continue to increase by 5%.
