In today’s society, the stakes are high for parents who desire to raise students who are not only academically prepared but who have a strong moral compass and a sense of purpose. A critical choice is the environment in which your student will spend 35-50 plus hours per week.
What kind of adult mentors and peers do you want impacting your student during these many hours? High school is one of the most significant times in life in terms of shaping a person’s self concept, values, and goals. These years are the most formative in determining the person your child will become—how he/she defines “success,” negotiates life’s storms, and finds the motivation to lead his/her life.
When you drop your child off at college, you will want to know that you have done all you can to prepare them to make good life choices in the years ahead: to choose a fulfilling career, to choose a marriage partner, to choose whether or not to have children, to choose how to handle life’s problems…
Your child’s spiritual growth is our top priority. Not all students who come to The King’s Academy are believers in Christ. We seek students who have teachable hearts and coachable spirits. Relational ministry is the gateway through which God can work in a student’s life. Students who have been grounded in the truth of God’s Word day after day during their formative years are better-equipped to handle discrepant ideas upon graduation.
At The King’s Academy, we offer regular and numerous opportunities for service that allow students to discover the pleasure of helping others and what it feels like to participate in something larger than themselves! Your child will be asked to contribute to aiding the world at large through service projects and mission trips.
At The King’s Academy, teachers and staff have a passion to know the heart of your student and build relationships, both inside and outside the classroom. Additionally, the smaller student body, low student-teacher ratio, and parent involvement at TKA gives students the support and encouragement students need to grasp complex academic concepts, work to their potential, and get involved on campus. Your child will not be lost in a crowd.
The King’s Academy tests all applicants to be sure students are performing at grade level or higher in order to handle the college prep level and pace of instruction. Once in high school, students who have demonstrated capability may select from 13 Honors and 12 Advanced Placement (AP) Courses for further academic challenge. At TKA, there is strong emphasis on skill building, in addition to content comprehension, so that students graduate equipped for college and work. They will learn and practice organization and study skills, critical thinking skills, effective oral and written communication skills, collaboration and teamwork skills, and much more.

TKA's 6th grade program is very special and a cornerstone of The King’s Academy experience. This is the beginning of what we hope are seven cumulative years of relationship building among classmates and with the staff. Our students often speak lovingly, and longingly, of their 6th grade year. What makes it so special?
At The King’s Academy, students are encouraged to get involved, explore new interests, and become part of a group experience. TKA students are very active, typically in several areas. Because we are a smaller school community, our student athletes can play multiple sports and have more playing time. TKA aims to compete at the CCS championship level each year. TKA Visual and Performing Arts programs are well-regarded throughout the Bay area and give students a chance to share their God-given talents whether through junior high or high school theatre, choir or show choir, marching band, color guard, percussion, orchestra, dance, art, broadcasting, yearbook and more! Additionally, TKA students have the opportunity to be trained as servant leaders through student government and clubs
At The King’s Academy, we see a lot of positive peer pressure with kids supporting each other to achieve academically, grow spiritually, and become involved in the many extracurricular activities offered. We have high standards about who is admitted to The King’s Academy, and high behavioral expectations, supported by rules which promote self respect. TKA offers a much safer emotional and spiritual environment where students can feel accepted for who they are. Verbal insults and bullying, things that go largely overlooked in a public school setting, will not be tolerated.
At The King’s Academy, we are much more accountable and responsive to students and parents, since families ultimately can “vote with their feet” and choose to stay or leave. TKA has been growing rapidly in the last several years and is now near full enrollment. In 2015, 99% of our graduates attended college and scored extremely well on the SAT and AP tests.
