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.


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


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.


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


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