Kentucky Avenue School is an offshoot of McEwan School. McEwan was founded in 1970 based on the essential philosophy that learning can be fun and that our attitude about learning greatly influences our ability and capacity to learn throughout our lifetime.

Kentucky Avenue School opened its doors as a licensed private school in the fall of 2002 and has continued as a K-8 program. KAS is designed to remain a small school. It enables us to ground education in strong personal relationships.

The small size allows faculty and staff to know each child and capitalize on his or her strengths. We build a caring community in which we treat each other with courtesy and respect. Our size also allows us to be relaxed and flexible, enabling us to differentiate instruction.
