Many people do not consider spiritual, emotional and social results when evaluating the success of a school. This narrow focus on academic achievement reflects the fundamental problem with mainstream education in America today. Students may gain knowledge, but what is knowledge without emotional maturity, social competence and Christian values to use that knowledge effectively for oneself and for the good of society?
As Christians, we know that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge” not just an add-on to a curriculum. As Christians, we mourn the lack of moral education that once permeated our public schools, and we long for opportunities to provide a moral context for facts, skills and thinking processes learned in school. KCA is such a school.
Fortunately, a few people still understand the importance of values and are willing to support a Christian school like KCA that educates and nurtures the whole child.
