Kingdom Academy, established in 1990, is a private school which operates with the purpose of providing quality education anchored on Christian values to PreK-8th grade students. The uniqueness of our educational program is the product of an excellent academic program complemented with financial literacy concepts that pairs business approaches with hands-on methods cultivating in the student an understanding their impact in the ever-changing global economy. To that end, the school conscientiously selects qualified staff with the capacity to implement our differentiated gifted curriculum designed to address the students’ individual characteristics, needs, abilities, and interests. Kingdom Academy views itself as a support system for the child and the family, and invites the participation of the parents and community in the program development.
Kingdom Academy is committed to cultivate leaders equipped with a sound academic education, rich of real-world experiences, to become God’s ambassadors and change agents in the world. To that end, the school’s leadership team has developed the School Affirmations:
We influence our students with values grounded on the Bible manifested through the life and teachings of Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:7-8, Luke 10:27, John 15:5).
We continuously pursue excellence in everything we do both individually and collectively, personally, and professionally, as we reach for the goal (Hebrews 12:1-2, 2 Timothy 2:15, Colossians 3:17).
We provide unique academic rigor that promotes critical thinking and challenges students through real world experiences to become successful stewards of God’s resources in the global economy (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Proverbs 22:6, Matthew 25:14-29).
As a member of the body of Christ, we instill in our school culture the responsibility to share the gospel of Jesus Christ in our city, in our nation, and in our world (Matthew 28:18-20, 2 Timothy 2:1-2, John 13:34-35).
We nurture a love for service in the school community that will inspire our students and families to advocate for the needs of others (Matthew 25:35-36, Colossians 3:23, Matthew 20:26-28).
We raise world leaders who are confident in their identity, goal driven, innovative, and passionate change agents to fulfil their purpose in their generation (1 Timothy 4:12, Titus 1:9, Jeremiah 29:11).
We honor the uniqueness of each individual and empower them to achieve their full potential (Psalm 139:14, Jeremiah 1:5, Genesis 1:26).
We build up our staff by providing a unified environment supported through professional development and spiritual growth that results in student achievement (I Timothy 4:7-8, Matthew 5:14-16, Ephesians 2:10).
We foster an alliance with the families of the school to ensure the success of the students by supporting them with resources, networks, and spiritual guidance (1 Thessalonians 2:8, 2 Corinthians 7:3-4, Ecclesiastes 4:12).
We embrace diversity and promote an appreciation for differences as global citizens graduating students who are conscious and have a strong compassionate character (Romans 10:13, Galatians 3:28, I Corinthians 12:12).
