It is my pleasure to welcome you to Kirk Academy. I invite you to learn more about all that Kirk
offers by exploring our web site or visiting our beautiful campus. We are proud to partner with
families seeking to educate their children in an independent school setting and who value a
college preparatory education in a Christian environment.
Kirk Academy, located at 2621 Carrollton Road in Grenada, Mississippi, is a K-3 through 12th
grade independent school that offers a Christian-based, college preparatory
education. Chartered as Grenada Educational Foundation in September 1966, it is named for
W.H. Kirk, who donated the original thirty acres of land. Over the years, the campus has
expanded to 65 acres, which include a preschool and elementary building, a high school
building, the A.R. Smithers Library, a gymnasium, two practice football fields, a football
stadium, softball complex, baseball complex, soccer field, and an outdoor classroom.
Kirk Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin in
administration of its educational programs. Through its wide variety of programs, the school
strives to develop all students academically, spiritually, and physically to their highest potential.
Kirk Academy, with a long tradition of academic and athletic excellence, has been educating the
youth of Central Mississippi for over fifty years and continues to be a leader in non-public
education in Mississippi.
Our Mission Statement: Kirk Academy strives to provide students the best possible Christianbased, college preparatory education while instilling in them respect for God, our nation,
