K-12 Educational Academies

KVC Missouri is a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening families, providing alternative education, preventing child abuse and neglect, and helping people achieve mental wellness. Our organization has a legacy of providing heart-centered services that stretches back to the early 1800s. We believe everyone deserves the life-changing support that comes from strong connections to individuals, families and communities.

What makes us unique?

Through our KVC Academies, we foster learning, growth and healing in a therapeutic school setting. We know that in order to learn and thrive, students must first feel safe and calm. Our trauma-informed team works to build trusting relationships with students and empowers them with individualized tools. KVC Academy is a unique learning environment where no one feels different, and students have the support needed to unlock their full potential.

KVC Academy is expanding with new classrooms


At KVC Academy, we’re passionate about learning and providing the therapeutic support youth need to thrive. We believe every child deserves an equal shot at future success. That’s why we’re here: for your children – our students.

We’re here for the child who feels out of place or struggles in other educational settings because of factors beyond his/her control or are recovering from substance use disorders and who needs a better place to learn. Your children will find a warm, nurturing, structured learning environment where they can accomplish everything from the simple to the incredible. We’re here to equip and empower them with the tools needed to guide them around life’s obstacles and to a place where they can unlock their full potential and thrive.

Your child receives individualized education combined with therapy from a highly trained school personnel in small class settings. Our evidence-based curriculum is at work on each of our eight campus locations across Missouri. Our schools are approved by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and the Illinois Board of Education, and nationally accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS). So you can be confident your child is getting a high-quality education that adheres to the same demanding standards placed on the most prestigious private schools.
