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.

On August 29th at 3 pm, we will be posting class lists. As we did last year, to protect privacy, we are listing only the last 4 digits of the student ID number, which is available at the top of all report cards. Parents/guardians should bring a copy of the report card or at least have their student number written down when coming to look at the lists so that they can match that number with their son/daughters’ names. We also ask that you not take photos of this information when it is posted or post classlist information on websites like Facebook.

If you require bus information, please call Stock Transportation Ltd at 679-1418 or the AVRSB transportation department at 538-4666.
