Our History

Front of the KCA building

Kingdom Christian Academy's formation was originally inspired by a respected Christian farmer from northwestern Callaway County and former Advisory Council Member, Mr. Paul Bastian. He had envisioned a Christian school in Callaway County, Missouri.

Inspired by Mr. Bastian, a number of meetings were held with others in the community. An important and historical meeting for KCA was held in 1994 at Richland Baptist Church in Kingdom City. The meeting was attended by a number of Christian families from various denominational backgrounds. It was discovered that those in attendance shared a common vision to have a Christian education alternative in the Callaway County area. From the courage and faith of these founding families, Kingdom Christian Academy was formed. A Steering Committee was created, which played a large role in establishing our school as it worked to form our Articles of Incorporation, and our By-Laws.

Opening Day

On September 5, 1995, Kingdom Christian Academy opened its doors to an original student body of 42 students from Kindergarten through the Eighth Grade, which consisted of a variety of Christian denominations. The classrooms consisted of space donated for use by the First Baptist Church, located at 701 Court Street, in Fulton. The First Baptist Church continued to offer building space for the school as it continued to grow for 15 years.


By the summer of 2010, KCA had grown enough that the student body had exceeded the size of the space donated by First Baptist Church, and therefore the school board sought direction from the Lord. Through prayer, faith, and the school board's leadership the school relocated its operations to Rice Hall, located on the campus of Missouri School for Deaf. The newly acquired facility opened its doors for the first time as a home for KCA during the 2010/2011 school year. The facility has better met our needs allowing for continued growth and successful education. It has, and remains to be, a blessing to all who cross the threshold of its doors.  Beginning with the 2016/2017 school year KCA expanded to become Fulton's only full PreK-12th grade Christian School awarding full High School diplomas to the Class of 2017.
