Holistic Approach, Proven Model

PBS School Model
KCNA follows a proven organizational model developed by Drew Charter School in Atlanta. With a combination of motivated teachers, a robust curriculum, and access to adequate resources, KCNA creates a culture that fosters academic success.

CULTURE

Our culture emphasizes empowerment, teacher collaboration across grade levels, strong professional development, student accountability, and high parental and family engagement.

CURRICULUM

Project based learning with a strong birth – 12 continuum driven by a robust early learning program, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) as a thematic focus, an intentional RtI (tiered) model for literacy and math, and a focus on enrichment opportunities and the development of 21st century skills.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT

We support our schools with a comprehensive community program designed to address those external factors that negatively impact student achievement.

PEOPLE

We attract experienced people motivated by high professional standards, collaboration, enrichment, and research-based practices.
