• Knights Academy took a group of students to the State Capitol yesterday for MAAP STARS Legislative Day.  We met with Sen. Kiffmeyer and Rep. Lucero to discuss the importance of alternative education and how, specifically, Knights Academy has helped the students in their educational journey and what they plan to do after high school.

  • A group of Knights Academy students read to some Kids Play students today!

Reading
  • Knights Academy has a newly formed student council focusing on service projects to help out our local community.  At first student council planned on making tie blankets for homeless veterans and their families.  But, when they were told by the organization they chose to work with that getting groceries was a struggle for the vets this year, they switched gears and planned a coin drive. Since December, Knights Academy students have raised over $200.  They are going to convert the money into grocery store gift cards and deliver them to the organization. 

    The organization we chose to help is linked here: https://www.mac-v.org/
