Why KCA?

We have an education opportunity in Kenosha.

Kids in our city neighborhoods don't have access to educational opportunities to meet their academic, relational, and spiritual needs.

We have a proven solution.

KCA will draw from the highly successful model established by Hope Academy in Minneapolis, Minnesota. With over 500 students, Hope's student body is 70% minority and 80% low income, has a 96% high school graduation rate and have received millions of dollars in college scholarships.
Hope Academy produces its tremendous results by building strong relationships with families, setting high expectations for students, and providing a rigorous Christian education.

Kenosha Christian Academy is a Founder School with Spreading Hope Network, a school-planning fellowship which catalyzes schools following the Hope Academy model through vetting, mentoring and resource-equipping.

Currently, there are few options for Kenosha's urban students to access private Christian education. KCA's mission is nurturing love of God and neighbor by providing inspiring Christian education to youth in the city.

KCA will be tuition-free.*

*For families applying through the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program, tuition will be free. 

We have the following approach:


We see families as partners. KCA builds personal relationships with families and values them as essential to students' success. Everyone benefits from a deep sense of community.


We believe every student is uniquely made by God to grow and take part in his great story. So, we keep the bar high and we are committed to helping all students reach it. We resist the trend to lower the bar, especially in low-income areas.


As students experience history, literature, math, and the arts, they learn about God, his world, and his offer for a good future. We rely on a biblical framework to understand everything. Classical works inspire depth, wisdom, and the imagination.


Unlike many schools, KCA is designed for each student to develop lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with mentors and support systems.
