  • Parents in the Tyler area now have 5 options for educating their children and preparing them for the next stage in their lives.
    • Option 1: Public Education
    • Option 2: Full-Time Private School
    • Option 3: Home School

  • Utilizing the University-Model School® concept, King’s Academy provides an affordable college preparatory education in a school that will respect your parental authority and allow sufficient time to pass on your beliefs and values to your children. University-Model Schooling (UMS) takes the best aspects of traditional, full-time public and private schools, as well as home schools, and molds them into one model.
