Our School

About Our School

Kindezi Academy believes that all children can and will learn. In order to actualize this bold vision, we implement a school model that focuses first and foremost on building relationships so that every child who comes to our schools is both known and loved. We have four core values that drive our decisions: LEAD WITH LOVE: All education begins with intentional time spent building relationships with our students and families. We want all of our children to become the best version of themselves, so we take the time to get to know each student and where they are academically in order to best meet their needs. EMBRACE UNIQUENESS: We have a culture that embraces culture we take great pride in the pasts of our families, and we leverage our collective strengths to build a better future. On a daily basis, we also spend most of our time teaching children in small groups that are designed to best meet their individual needs. FOSTER CHARACTER: Who the children are is as important as what they know, so we interweave character education into everything that we do. Our students spend each day learning how to become leaders who choose their own futures in high school, college, and beyond. IGNITE IMAGINATION: Our goal is that when our students are asked what they learned at school, they regale their families with stories of the exciting things they learned about that day. True education occurs when scholars are active and engaged, so we incorporate active learning into each day.
