SchoolSmartKC Announces Funding for Kansas City Neighborhood Academy

SchoolSmartKC announced an investment of $500,000 to support Kansas City Neighborhood Academy, a district-sponsored charter school.  The two-year, $500,000 investment will allow Kansas City Neighborhood Academy (KCNA) to increase the grades currently served from pre-Kindergarten through second grade to pre-Kindergarten through fourth grade, adding 154 students over the next two years.


KCNA targets the Wendell Phillips neighborhood and is part of a larger effort of the Urban Neighborhood Initiative (UNI), an organization which partners with neighborhood, business, government and community organizations to revitalize areas of the urban core.  UNI is one of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce’s Big 5 priorities.
