The Kemper Academy experience is a unique one. Kemper Academy was built in 1970 on ten acres of land in DeKalb, Mississippi. The school was founded for the purpose of providing quality, affordable education for the children of Kemper County and the surrounding areas. Over the years, our students have won awards in academic competitions and have received numerous scholarships to universities and community colleges. Our alumni have received advanced degrees and are successful in their chosen fields.
Kemper Academy is a nonprofit organization composed of PreK through 12th grade. There are almost 200 students enrolled for the 2018-2019 school year.
We are accredited through the Southern Association of College and Schools (SACS) as well as the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools (MSAIS). Being a small school in a small southern town allows us to offer our students a caring, safe, family-like environment where our children are "known", loved and well-cared for.
