The goal of Kingswood Academy is to assist parents in their fundamental role as primary educators of their children by helping to form them intellectually, morally, and spiritually. We like to say that it’s really a school for parents. Kingswood provides a number of formative activities for parents on a regular basis. These include family conferences, mothers exchanges, speakers on a wide range of formative topics and discussion groups. All of them aim to help you educate your child so that your child can learn to deal prudently and effectively with contemporary society.
How we implement the Mission Our approach is parents first, then teachers, and then students, in that order. First, we work closely with parents to help form the children entrusted to them, so they can better form them intellectually, morally, and spiritually. This is done through a number of formative parent enrichment events throughout the year, sponsored by the Kingswood Academy Parent Association (KAPA). Second, we work closely with the teachers who are the instruments at school of implementing the mission. Faculty formation occurs on Wednesdays, on a weekly basis. Both parents and teachers work together, to help students develop into the persons they were created to be.
Building character through education… One child at a time We view parents as the primary educators of their children, and our faculty and staff work closely with parents so that together we help each student grow into virtuous men and women. Our emphasis on character has led us to remain smaller in class size. Our average teacher to student ratio is 1:10.
