Our Mission StatementThe mission of Kingdom Academy is to develop technologically literate, self-reliant, high achieving students in grades K-5th that are able to transfer knowledge and skills to real life situations and are prepared to succeed in college, the global market place and society.
Our VisionThe vision of Kingdom Academy is to provide students with the experience of Virtual Enterprise, a program where students simulate all activities of actual business, including buying and selling, marketing, accounting and administration, and the National Academy of Finance.
What Makes Us DifferentKingdom Academy is committed to the education of young children and the achievement of their optimal developmental level. Our program views itself as a support system for the child and his/her family. To this end, staff is carefully selected, and programs are individually planned to meet the unique needs of each child. The program provides a multitude of educational opportunities through which each child is guided towards his/her greatest potential.
We believe strongly that the child learns best through direct experiences with his/her world and through interaction with other children and adults.
CampusKingdom Academy is situated in the heart of Kendall, in a state of the art building constructed in 2007. The students enjoy large classrooms, equipped with smart boards and computers that facilitate instruction that are properly scaffold to meet the individual needs of each participant. In addition, a cafeteria, media/library center, playground, and organized sport fields are available to all the students on a daily basis. The facility provides a kitchen that will allow hot meals to be cooked for all the students that wish to participate in the food program. The building design takes into account the safety of the students and staff. Access to the building is limited, and the building plan minimizes the risk of violent or disruptive behavior.
