Keystone Christian Academy, located in Norfolk, Nebraska, provides a Christian education in which character development and Biblical perspective are fused together with strong academic expectations.
Keystone Christian Academy began as Christ Is King Community School, an outreach of Christ Is King Community Church (now Lifepoint Church) in 1983. In 2004 the school leadership realized the need to be independent of any single church affiliation, so the name was changed to Keystone Christian Academy with the goal of better aligning with the non-denominational community in Norfolk. Although the school is housed within the Lifepoint Church building and shares a history with that church family, it functions as an independent entity.
From the very beginning, the school leadership recognized the value of children being immersed in an environment where character development and a Biblical perspective are consistently and simultaneously integrated with academic excellence. In their formative years, children must have opportunity and skillful guidance to establish a solid foundation in those qualities to become future influencers in an evermore progressive post-Christian world. When the parental values at home are compatible with those of the school, children are able to function without confusion and live out an authentic relationship with Christ. Our goal is for graduates of Keystone Christian Academy to live a life of cultural relevance, resulting in meaningful and positive transformation among those whose lives they touch. As adults, many Keystone Christian Academy alumni have become top students and leaders in area high schools, colleges, military academies, and the communities in which they now reside, living out the foundational vision of Keystone Christian Academy.
The staff at KCA teaches from doctrinal principles emphasizing the Gospel message of the person of Jesus Christ.
