Keystone Christian Academy is a progressively innovative Christian school located in Norfolk, Nebraska. KCA blends a conservative Christian focus with character development and strong academic expectations. Since KCA was founded, much change and growth has occurred over the last 30 plus years.
Keystone Christian Academy began as an outreach of Christ is King Community Church in 1983. In 2004 it changed its name from Christ is King Community School to Keystone Christian Academy to partner with the interdenominational community. The KCA Hybrid High School started in the fall of 2011 to allow students the option of continuing their Christian education with a focus on a Biblical worldview development while taking courses with area high schools. Today, KCA partners with approximately 10 churches.
When KCA changed its name, the goal was to align with the interdenominational community. This was also the point where leadership began to realize a need for KCA to be independent of any single church affiliation. The co-existence of the school and Christ is King Church is a testimony of the great relationship that exists. Though the school is housed within the church building and shares a history with this church family, for all intents and purposes it functions as an independent entity. KCA is grateful for the gracious patience of the church and the support of many of its families.
When the school started, the leadership recognized the value of children being immersed in an environment where character development and a Biblical worldview coincided with an excellent education. Children in their formative years have opportunity to build a foundation to be future “change-agents”. This occurs best when their primary education does not abort God in its training, curriculum, and function. Now as adults, many alumni have become top students and leaders in area high schools, colleges, and the communities in which they now reside, living out the foundational vision of Keystone Christian Academy.
