Grant County Partners

Kinwell Academy

Kinwell Academy is a faith based, private school who partners with public schools to serve students who are struggling. We provide an alternative to students who are facing expulsion, pregnant, falling behind in attendance, anxiety, and a number of other hardships. Students are able to earn a Core 40 diploma through Kinwell.

Education at Kinwell is a whole new experience for our students. Our staff works hard to build relationships with every student through cups of coffee, meals, and even trips around the midwest. We try to take 20 trips a year to give our kids a new life experience. This widens their worldview and gives an opportunity for staff and student to know each other at a new level.

Our mission is to live along side our students and together, grow in Christ.
