Head of School's Message

Our board of directors, students, staff, and patrons would like to welcome you to Kemper Academy.


The mission of Kemper Academy is to provide a quality education for the children of our service area.  We believe in and are committed to the concept that schools are for children; therefore, every decision concerning this organization is made with the intent of helping our students realize their potential.  While the education of our children is top priority, we also realize that the needs of our children are many and varied.  We strive not only to meet the educational needs of our students but to also meet their physical, social, and spiritual needs as well.  Through our curriculum, extracurricular activities, and special programs, we endeavor to develop students who are well prepared to meet the challenges of both the college classroom and the workplace.


Education is a team process that requires the best efforts of staff, parents, and the community working together for a common goal.  We desire to develop that spirit of congeniality and teamwork while actively soliciting the support of all who desire to influence the lives of our students in a positive manner.


Come visit us today and enjoy the KA experience!
