Student Satisfaction

Over 96% of our parents say their children are satisfied with our program and are pleased with their child’s academic growth.

We (both students and parents) were frustrated and disappointed with our local school. We began investigating virtual schools when we received flyers in the mail. The quality, professionalism and positive approach of KCA impressed us, so we gave it a shot and haven’t been disappointed.


Bekah is doing well in school. She has become an independent learner and is able to go to her teachers when she has questions. I am now Bekah's Learning Coach and can more easily slip into the role of mother."


KCA takes the good qualities of a public brick & mortar school–such as state approved educational guidelines and the availability of free resources to parents and students; a private school–such as dedicated educators and a sound curriculum with a variety of resources; and homeschooling–such as flexibility and an education tailored to the individual student. These things are combined to make an excellent school.


Teachers Provide a High Level of Support

Nearly 95% of our parents praised the helpfulness of their child’s teacher. Our parents appreciate the dedication and professionalism of our teaching staff and report a high level of satisfaction with their work.

At KCA, the teachers are readily available, supportive and positive.

Our family is extremely grateful for the help each of our daughter's teachers gave her and to us as we negotiated our way through the first several months of school at KCA

The teachers in this school are wonderful, so caring and compassionate. I feel that they care about the students and their success from the bottom of their hearts. I will never send my children back to a "bricks and mortar" school after our positive experiences here.

The Curriculum is High Quality

Nearly 96% of our parents agree that our curriculum is high quality. KCA strives to bring together the best educational resources in order to create challenging and inspiring lessons for students.

At KCA, the curriculum has been impressive and challenging. The virtual LiveLesson® sessions with the teachers and the staff support amazing. I am able to really be involved in Daniel's school work daily, attend educationally filled field trips and know that he is getting a quality education.p>

The curriculum is top-notch, the staff is highly-educated; CA has been an overall highly rated academic program for our families’ needs.

Technology Enhances the Learning Experience

Nearly 96% of families agreed that our technology tools helped to improve their children’s learning experiences. Many parents appreciated Connexus, our proprietary education management system, for helping to keep them organized with grade tracking, scheduling, and communication.

At KCA, the Connexus  education management system provides a lot of information, but is still simple to use. Schoolwork can be done on a schedule that works the best for an individual. A student can work at a pace that is advantageous to their abilities and interests. They can work quickly and then move on to other work or they may work slowly without pressure when they don’t understand and they have the freedom to dig deeper into something that interests them.

The teachers, staff, and Tech Support team are hugely helpful. WebMail emails are always answered promptly and completely as well as accurately. We enjoy learning with our children. We love CA!
