Many schools educate, few change lives.  At The King’s Academy, students graduate with a sense of belonging and a sense of purpose.  TKA offers a Christ-centered college preparatory curriculum for grades 6-12.
At TKA, students know they matter.  They thrive in our save, wholesome environment.  With a low teacher-student ratio, your student will receive loving, individual attention from teachers.
TKA’s Spiritual Life program and service trips prepare students to make a difference to others.  We offer a stellar visual & performing arts program known throughout the Bay Area and competitive athletics.   We offer a loving, family environment where students are encouraged to grow in their relationships with Jesus, their family, teachers, and others.
We are committed to developing God’s best for each student spiritually, academically, morally and socially through every program and activity.
The most important part of the school's name is the apostrophe.  The King's Academy exists to honor and glorify our King, Jesus Christ. The King's Academy has a non-discriminatory racial policy and admits students of all races to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities made available to all regularly enrolled students.
