  • A Choice School

    Kent Mountain View Academy (KMVA) provides families and their children in grades 3-12 with a choice in their education. Family-friendly and small by design, I am thrilled to lead and serve our KMVA community and nurture a school where every child is loved and belongs. Recognized by the state of Washington as an innovative and multiple-year award-winning school, our students demonstrate both high achievement and growth. This means every student is learning. Our ongoing success is grounded in the authentic relationships of a caring community of learners.   

    Small School Big Heart

    At KMVA, we delight in our relationships with each other and express them through our schoolwide expectations. Our community reflects our PRIDE. KMVA Lions are:

    • Persevering
    • Respectful
    • Inclusive
    • Dependable
    • Engaged

    Our Community

    KMVA began serving students and their families in 1997 by providing an option to their boundary schools. Over the years, we have held strong to our founding principles: relationships matter, education is a partnership, and every child belongs.

    Our Commitment

    Our KMVA community belongs to our staff, students and their families. We welcome the opportunity to work together for the sake of our students. If you are interested in learning more about KMVA or how you can be a part of what is happening in our school, please contact me or our friendly office staff for more information.
