KCGPA’s Coronavirus Response
KCGPA reopened on August 17, 2020 with a 100% remote model of learning. When community transmission rates decrease we will return to a 100% in person model. We will partner with families to support the needs of all students.
Enroll now for 5th – 7th grade
Students have a right to enroll in classes at Kansas City Girls Prep Academy’s expense unless it is determined that it is not in the best interest of the student. Please reference Board Policy 6276 to learn more.
Teach @ KCGPA
We are hiring 5th and 6th grade teachers in all subjects. Come and teach the leaders of tomorrow. We welcome applications and referrals.
We teach young women to use their voices, succeed in college and lead impactful, meaningful lives.
KC Girls Prep welcomed its first class of fifth-grade students in the fall of 2019, becoming the first single-gender, open-enrollment charter public school in Kansas City. In 2020, we have nearly 140 fifth and sixth-grade students enrolled in distance learning, with a plan to return to classroom instruction when the pandemic abates.
We will grow one grade per year to form a middle school (5th-8th) and high school (9th-12th). Both schools will foster a strong sense of community and a rigorous, college-bound academic culture.
KCGPA provides access to award winning, tuition-free instruction that recognizes the social and emotional needs of students, and challenges them with rich literature, accurate and multicultural history, and intensive learning in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics).
The explicit focus on inclusive practices that address the opportunity gap faced by our students provides them with a space where young women of all backgrounds are affirmed and can approach academics with confidence.
KC Girls Prep’s approach to learning honors the diversity of our young women’s cultural, intellectual, physical, social and emotional backgrounds. The school provides educational supports and opportunities that remove barriers to learning and enable our students to fully participate in school programs.
Vision & Values
We seek to address a community need for more and better educational opportunities in neighborhoods that have been negatively impacted by segregation.
Community – We trust and support one another.
Growth – We are constantly growing to be our best selves.
Freedom – We create opportunities to think, speak, and act with courage and purpose.
