ABOUT KARDIA CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
Welcome to the Kardia Christian Academy website. I joined the Kardia staff in 2017 as a first grade teacher, and I am honored to now serve as Principal. I have been an elementary educator for many years and have a variety of experiences in the classroom, in Administration, in instructional leadership, and in developing intervention plans. I believe God led me to Kardia to serve the school, the families, and the community. I am very thankful to be a part of this special place and look forward to the great things He has in store for this great school.
Our school started this year off with some growth opportunities. We have been able to add an additional Kindergarten class and First Grade class. God is so good! One thing we have realized is that many of our new parents are made aware of Kardia through contact with our current Kardia families.
Our teachers have already been busy preparing for the new school year. We were able to partner with Klein ISD to attend some amazing professional development classes. We also received some funding from the Title 2 and Title 4 programs through Klein ISD. These funds have enabled us to purchase some early literacy training resources and some surveillance video equipment for the safety of our campus. We are very appreciative to Klein ISD for giving us these opportunities.
The leadership team has been working together to plan some amazing learning experiences for our students through presentations, field trips, electives, and STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art and Mathematics) activities. These experiences add so much to our year academically, socially, physically, and spiritually. These learning opportunities help make Kardia a wonderful place for our young students.
Our theme for the year is “The Beginning of Knowledge”. This theme comes from the first chapter in Proverbs, verse 7:
Respect and obey the Lord! This is the beginning of knowledge. Only a fool rejects wisdom and learning.
Our theme this year and every year falls under our Kardia Christian Academy Mission verse. Luke 10:27:
Love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind. And, love your neighbor as yourself.
It is going to be a great year of learning. I look forward to welcoming everyone back. God is at work here and we cannot wait to begin the 2019-2020 school year.
Our History and Vision
Windwood Christian Academy was first established with a Kindergarten in 1998. It was a ministry of Windwood Presbyterian Church on the Grant road location. When the church moved to the Spring Cypress location, Michelle Asous relocated the preschool and the academy. Both schools grew and portables were set up for the academy, expecting to have a building in a year or two. The growth of the academy was affected by economic stress in the years 2009-2015 and an elementary building was postponed.
The Watsons took over the Academy and the name was changed to Kardia in 2015. Kardia is still a ministry of Windwood church and equips the next generation to know and grow a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In the process Kardia helps students discover the fun of learning and the Academy promotes excellence in leadership with an emphasis on emotional intelligence, experiential opportunities through STEAM, electives and academics. We partner with families to help each student reach their God-give potential.
Our future goals include:
Continuing to help students and families strengthen their relationship with Jesus Christ
Continuing to hire Christ-centered teachers who view each student as a spiritual being created in the image of God
Beginning and completing the accreditation process with ACSI
Growing the population to 2 classes per grade with a total of 284 students, keeping class sizes to 1 teacher for 10 Developing Kindergarten Skills (DK), 1 teacher for 12 students for Kindergarten and 15 students for 1 teacher in 1st through 6th grades
Establishing grades through 8th grade
Partnering with a Christian High School to take Kardia’s students through graduation
Building a state-of-the art building to enhance Christ-centered students and academic excellence
We continue to pray and seek God’s direction each year.
The mission of Kardia Christian Academy is to partner with families to equip and encourage students to reach their God-given potential, spiritually, emotionally, academically, physically and socially and become servant leaders who will impact the culture for Christ.
