At the very core, Kansas City Christian (KCC) purpose is to provide an environment where students rigorously pursue knowledge, character and faith. We provide an excellent academic experience, while recognizing that it is not sufficient to focus solely on statistics and test scores. Academics at KCC are designed to cultivate the entire student - mind, heart, and soul. It is KCC's goal to equip students with the necessary knowledge to succeed in life through academic excellence, critical thinking skills, and spiritual maturity.
It is this blend that makes KCC a unique learning environment. While intentionally placing the Word of God throughout the learning process, we teach by using designated objectives that hold a high respect for academics. These objectives are designed by a curriculum team using Kansas and national standards, William Bennett's book, The Educated Child and various curriculum resources. As education continues to be dynamic, and not static, we are committed to providing an education that is challenging, broad-based and provides a college preparatory path. Highly qualified teachers, along with the best resources available, allows our students to learn, to develop the ability to filter information and to become critical thinkers entering the 21st century.
KCC seeks solid, deep knowledge in core subjects of reading, math, science and history. Through a traditional educational setting, we remain progressive with enhancing critical thinking which is being demanded with developing technology, professions and interests. This enables students to take what they know and express it in a creative and relevant manner. This generation is being called to transform culture instead of imitating it.
KCC is dually accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and by AdvancED, formally known as North Central Association (NCA). All KCC teachers are certified by ACSI; in addition, elementary teachers are state certified and middle school/high school teachers have degrees in their subject area(s). KCC offers core courses in all grade levels, advanced classes at the middle and high school levels, and numerous co-curricular courses such as computer, art, music, foreign language, drama and others. This environment of highly qualified teachers, rigorous and diverse curriculum choices and a smaller setting enables our teachers to become key resources in truly meeting the needs of our students. This personal knowledge provides a unique perspective to Christian education at KCC.
