Our teachers, coaches, and staff are often the primary reason families choose Kingsway Christian School. That is because at KCS, educators are more than teachers. They are mentors who take the time to get to know their students — their strengths, talents, areas for improvement and who they are as a person — which we make possible through small class sizes. The result is a culture of trusted, lifelong relationships, shaped inside and outside the classroom.

Our staff has over 580 combined years of experience, with 50 degrees. We have 37 certified staff members.

A great many of our teachers are here because they want to give back in light of the investments that have been made in their own families by the community of KCS.
