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.
With excellent academic preparation, 99% of graduates attend college or university.
TKA`s Spiritual Life program and service trips around the globe prepare students to make a difference to others. We offer a stellar visual & performing arts program known throughout the Bay Area and competitive athletics, fielding 57 teams yearly.
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.
