Kelso Christian Assembly


Our Philosophy


Our program exalts Christ as the Source of life

(Hebrews 12:2).

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

and spiritually.

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%.
