At KNCP, all students participate in our music program, which includes the option to join our performance band. Extracurricular opportunities include student council, basketball, cross country, track, cheerleading, step team and a variety of clubs. At KNCP, we believe that every child has the opportunity to be a leader, and we support our students in discovering their inner leader through intentional character building, including a course on leadership.
