Philosophy of Education

To achieve its mission, KCS incorporates into its educational program Biblical values and perspective through teaching and example, curriculum, morning devotions, and weekly chapel services.

We believe a safe, caring environment, cooperative living, creative activity, and a sense of achievement are necessities in a child's process of maturation.

KCS seeks to:

  • Treat each child as a unique, special gift from God and strives to develop each individual to his or her fullest potential.
  • Partner with parents/guardians to educate the whole person (spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical, and social); raising up children to be like Christ by following His model of increasing in wisdom and stature, in favor with God and men, reflecting God's grace in his life.
  • Provide students with nurturing teachers and staff who are committed to KCS' mission, vision, and philosophy of education, and who model, in and out of the classroom, the Christ-like character that is at the center of our educational philosophy.
  • Provide an environment, resources, and program conducive to learning and character development, which promotes a love and respect for God, the Bible, the family, leaders, and classmates.
  • Provide a curriculum that encompasses grade-level appropriate academic achievement integrated with the development of practical abilities and skills, as well as preparation for church, community, and public service.
