Welcome to Kuumba Academy Charter School (KACS), a tuition-free public charter school for grades K–8 that is open to all! ‘Kuumba’ means ‘Creativity,’ and this resonates throughout our school not only in spirit but also in our Wilmington Creative District location and Christina Cultural Arts Center partnership.
We are committed to being the highest-performing public charter school in Delaware, and to closing the achievement gap in Wilmington. Our students are our primary focus, and our goal is to help them build character, develop a strong sense of respect and solid work ethic, and succeed.
At KACS, you’ll find a creative integration between academics and the arts, culturally-aware and empowered students, professional teachers who care, passionate leadership, the latest technology, and active family and community engagement.
