Parent Testimonial:

"There are so many reasons why we love Kingswood Academy. The academic program is challenging and individual attention can be given to the students due to the small class size. The religion program teaches the Catholic faith, not some watered down version of Catholicism. We want to know that the values and beliefs we have at home are also carried over into the school day.

We don't want our children thinking that religion is something we only talk about on Sunday or amongst the family. They should be able to talk, share, and live their faith all day long. Kingswood supports the family and promotes the faith through family activities, guest speakers, and other events all year long. There are not many schools like Kingswood, and we're so happy that we found them.
