Some of the reviews and lower than 5 star ratings are in fact the reason people send their children to KUA. Accountability, Attendance, Athletics. When I attended we had formal dinner 4 days a week and most played a competitive sport 3 seasons a year. Not Necessarily bad thing but rather part of the experience.
30 years after graduation I still participate in the activities I began at KUA.
Learn Life skills and Leadership and be ahead of the academic curve for College. I say yes!

My time at KUA was spent well! As an above average, I enjoyed all the challenging classes my dear school had to offer! I am now a successful lawyer after spending some time at Harvard, thanks to the prep and work done at KUA. I still come back to visit with my family once and awhile, as my daughter will be attending in the fall as a freshman! I 10/10 recommend KUA to anyone who wishes to be successful.
There are so many opportunities to learn new things, meet new people and expand your interests and grow as a person. The campus is absolutely beautiful and I loved my experience! Super strong athletics, academics and artistic opportunities: very well rounded.
