Callaway’s Christian-school 8th graders will now have an option to continue their education into high school.
Kingdom Christian Academy has announced they will expand their curriculum to include freshman courses in addition to K-8 course work, beginning in Fall 2013.
The Kingdom Christian Academy School Board unanimously agreed to establish the KCA High School at the Oct. 16 board meeting; a plan which KCA Administrator Paulette Eichman said was almost two decades in the making.
“We’re in our 18th year in operation, and there’s always been a plan for KCA to have a high school,” said Eichman. “It’s been in the works, and we have a wonderful committee that’s been working on this passionately.”
Eichman said that enrollment was strong enough this year to finally go forward with the high school. KCHS will open for freshman enrollment for the 2013-2014 school year and will add grades 10-12 over the next four years. In addition to religious classes on the Bible, integrated Christian Education and Missions, the school will offer conventional courses to meet or exceed state standards.
