Kings County Academy is a primary to grade eight school located in Kentville, Nova Scotia and is part of the Annapolis Valley Regional School Board. In addition to the regular elementary and junior high course offering, KCA offers a French Immersion programme inclusive of grades primary to grade 8. The school has a total enrollment of approximately 614 students and 70 staff members serving the needs of its students. Upon completing grade eight, students leaving KCA attend Northeast Kings Education Center in Canning.

KCA has a long history and a strong community base.

KCA is also a PEBS (Positive, Effective, Behavior Support) School. This means we identify and clearly communicate to students what positive behavior expectations are and support them in meeting these expectations.
