Kingston Hill Academy (KHA) is a public charter school located in Saunderstown, Rhode Island. The school opened in September of 2001 with just 40 kindergarten students. Since that time, the school has grown to 260 students in kindergarten through 5th Grade. KHA is operated under a charter granted by the Board of Regents of the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) and follows RIDE regulations, including assessment and teaching standards. KHA has a 185-day school year and an average student/ teacher ratio of approximately 11:1. Each classroom has two teachers - a lead teacher and a co-teaching partner.

Kingston Hill staff provides each student with the skills, knowledge, and tools necessary to be successful both in and out of the classroom. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond for students and our professional team works together to ensure the school experience is a positive one. It is common to see parents in our building serving many roles and helping on a daily basis.

KHA is a high performing elementary public school with a low percentage of absenteeism. Its family atmosphere extends to all stakeholders, including our Board of Trustees - the governing body of this charter school.

KHA is a Title I, rural inclusion school that incorporates STEAM education into its K-5 curriculum. According to one KHA administrator, "Kingston Hill Academy is more than a school; it is very much a family. We excel at providing a personalized school experience that far exceeds academics."
