Letter From the Head of School

Thank you for your interest in KCA DeSoto. As a Christian private school, we offer students a superior collegiate education with a Kingdom worldview that prepares them for success in college and in life. One of our greatest characteristics is our diverse student body comprising students as young as 4 years through grade 12. 

KCA DeSoto has a longstanding and impressive history of academic excellence and achievement since its inception in 1992. Learning is an enjoyable experience at any age, thus, we ensure our students become life-long learners fully equipped to excel in life beyond their formal education.

At KCA DeSoto, we nourish the mind, body and spirit by offering an array of programs that challenge our students academically, spiritually, physically and socially. We use 21st Century learning strategies that build higher academic and critical thinking skills in the students we serve. Through bible integration and weekly Chapel, our students are taught to align their decisions and behavior with the Word of God.

Additionally, through competitive sports, students have opportunities to develop good character and sportsmanship necessary to persevere in challenging situations. Our Fine Arts program stirs the imagination and creativity of our students.

With our vastly qualified staff of teachers and administrators who know and love the students, our classrooms are supportive, safe and conducive for higher learning.

To truly experience KCA DeSoto, you must visit our beautiful 32-acre campus and see first-hand the excitement of our students. Schedule a tour and see for yourself the KCA Difference.
