The current building opened to 1st and 2nd year pupils in August 1977, and later was opened to all other school years.
In 2014 the school was awarded £4000 to support a scheme to get more people involved in sports.
Kilwinning Academy is rated B for the building's condition and sustainability.
Kilwinning Academy S2 Art and Design pupils in 2010/11 helped Irvine Bay Regeneration in their efforts to refurbish Kilwinning's town centre by creating tiles for a mural for a tunnel leading from the shops and Abbey to the car park.
