School Notes

  • At TKA, we believe every student deserves the opportunity to excel academically in an environment that nurtures their relationship with Christ and others. We are committed to recognizing the unique academic needs of each student while developing Christian character and godly wisdom. At TKA, teachers walk and talk with their students through complex issues and explore the world through a Biblical worldview. They remind students that there is a loving and good God, and they train them on how to express a better story than the one the world is offering one that redirects their hearts and minds towards God. The goal at TKA isn`t just to impart wisdom and knowledge but also to equip students with the tools they need to be lifelong Christ-followers! Check out our website for more information: https://www.kingsacademy.com/

The King's Academy to me is a place where I can go to feel safe and loved by the surrounding people. As I long as I have been attending the school, my relationship with God has been getting stronger and I know I am surrounded by a group of faithful teachers and students who I can learn from every day. Going to TKA has encouraged me to strive to be my best self and to honor the Lord in everything that I do. TKA to me is more than just a school, it is like a little family that gives me great opportunities to love and care for others.

Two years in TKA as an international student and it couldn't have been better. I've met a lot of amazing people here, and I'm glad I get to be a part of this school.

I've taught at several public and Christian schools, and I can honestly say that teaching at TKA has been the dream job. The reason is the environment of support, love, collaboration, respect, and community. I feel like TKA is family, and I've never had that before. The small class sizes mean I get to really know my students and spend quality time teaching and coaching them. Without the need to 'teach to a test,' students get a full year of curriculum and are better prepared for college and beyond. Because it is a Christian school, I can have a biblical worldview which I love. I love TKA!

As an administrator at The King's Academy, I get to observe the inner workings of the school. What I see is a staff committed to Christ, Christian education, and their students. I am constantly amazed at their dedication to their students and their positive attitudes. Their creativity astonishes me as they bring their subjects to life. Students see TKA as a family, both students and staff, and it is a privilege to work here.

Our family really likes The King's Academy. The staff is a blessing to our children. The class sizes are small and no child is left behind. Their academics are followed closely. I am informed of anything that affects my children. The administration is always very helpful and answer all our questions. I recommend the school to any parent and family!
