Welcome to KAPPA III
KAPPA III provides a rigorous, accelerated academic program that prepares our scholars to attend high performing public and private high schools, graduate from our country’s top universities, and then to take their place as America’s next generation of civic leaders. At KAPPA III, we believe that all scholars can surpass the goals set by the city and state, if provided with a nurturing environment, where parents, faculty and the administration work together toward the common goal of providing a quality education to the scholars in the community.
Incentives are a constant factor at KAPPA III; we find it provides positive increases in work habits, self-esteem, intrinsic motivation, and a cooperative classroom environment for all students. Trips are planned to support instruction, and develop cultural, artistic/social knowledge and skills.
School pride contributes to a positive school culture. Scholars must show school pride by singing the KAPPA III song and the KAPPA III chant with respect daily during morning routines and at all assemblies. The expectation is that all scholars can achieve high standards academically. Scholars will have an opportunity to show school spirit through activities and community service during the school year.
Scholars in all grades (6, 7 & 8) must report Monday through Friday at 8:00 until 2:30 pm. It’s required that all scholars attend one of the academic programs after school to prepare for the State Exams from 2:30-4:00 pm or Saturday from 9:00-12:00 pm.
