Kingsway Christian School is a ministry of Kingsway Christian Church. Jan Caldwell, wife of Kingsway's first Senior Pastor John Caldwell, had a dream to start a Christian school where her children and others could receive an excellent, Christ-centered education. Because of her dream and determination, we have been privileged to provide continuous service and ministry to our community since the school doors were first opened in September of 1977.
On the first day of school in 1977, there were two teachers and twenty-five students in first through fourth grades. What a marvelous amount of growth has taken place since then! KCS now has over 70 full and part-time teachers and staff, averaging nealy 500 students in preschool through eighth grade. We provide before and after school supervision as well.
Kingsway Christian School has been accredited by the State of Indiana since 1983 and by ACSI (the Association of Christian Schools International), the largest Christian School Association in North America since 1996. In addition, the teaching staff is well-credentialed in education and experience.
Because KCS is accredited by the State of Indiana, we participate in the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress (ISTEP+) each year in grades 3 through 8. Our 1st and 2nd grades participate in the Stanford Achievement Test given each spring. Results from both tests strongly support the quality of our academic program and graduates have gone on to do very well at their next schools. A high percentage of our students are recognized as gifted and talented, and are placed in advanced classes of math, language, music and more.
Kingsway continues to be a school striving to honor God in education and the total environment of our ministry. We praise God for providing excellent teachers, wonderful facilities, and the continued support of Kingsway Christian Church.
However, our “real” credentials are our students. We want our students to be well-adjusted Christian young people, equipped to serve God as successful secondary students, and as successful men and women equipped with Biblical decision-making skills that will guide them and stay with them throughout their lives.
