School Beliefs:

Kirk Academy has the following beliefs as developed by its patrons, Board, faculty, administration, and students:

  • All people are assigned by God, a gender at birth. This is the gender that will be recognized by Kirk Academy in any and all dealings with students, faculty, and staff.
  • A safe and physically comfortable environment promotes student learning.
  • Student learning in a Christian environment is the chief priority of the school.
  • Students need not only to demonstrate their understanding of essential knowledge and skills, but also need to be involved actively in solving problems and producing quality work.
  • Students’ learning needs should be the primary focus of all decisions impacting the work of the school.
  • The commitment to continuous improvement is imperative if our school is going to enable students to become confident, self-directed learners.
  • Students need to apply their learning in meaningful contexts.
  • Exposure to consistent, strong Christian morals promotes student learning and strengthens individual student morals.
  • Students learn best when they have appropriate opportunities for success.
  • Students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process.
  • Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs.
  • Extra-curricular activities provide positive opportunities for the individual student to develop a sense of self and purpose.
  • A student’s self esteem is enhanced by positive relationships and mutual respect among and between students and staff.
