This school year has gone by so quickly! We are enjoying our time together and look forward to the summer program. The summer program will include lots of fun, hands-on activities. This summer we will have visits from Chester Cheetah, the Topeka Fire Department, Derby Girls, the library, and the ice cream man. We will enjoy splash days and lots of arts and crafts activities.

Kennedy Academy accepts children from the ages of 2 1/2 years through Kindergarten. Children must be potty trained. We do not discriminate against anyone in regard to race, religion, national origin, ancestry, physical handicap, or sex. However, we do say a prayer of thanks before each meal and we do teach the true meaning of Christian holidays such as Christmas and Easter. We also celebrate all of the other holidays throughout the year.

We are currently accepting applications for the remaining school year and summer program, as well as the 2016/2017 school year. Please contact the school office for more information or to book a tour today.  We believe you will find your experience with Kennedy Academy to be positive and fulfilling. Kennedy Academy’s hours of operation are from 6:30 am – 5:30 pm.  Our before school child care hours are from 6:30 am – 8:30 am and the school day begins promptly at 8:30 am.  Our academic curriculum takes place between 8:30 am – 3:30 pm.  From 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm we offer our after school child care program for the convenience of working parents.  Before and after school care is included in the weekly tuition.
