The purpose of this post is to encourage you. We have so much to be thankful for, and we all have so much that we can agree upon. Let’s enter next week with a thankful attitude and a prayer for healing in our communities and country. It has to start with each one of us, and as Christians, it should start with us. As you create your own Thanksgiving list, remember Christ died for us and is preparing a place for us in Heaven. This place is not our home.

Dear Parents of Prospective TKA Students:
Choosing a school for your children is one of the most important decisions a parent can make. At TKA, we listen very carefully and intentionally to parents who tell us repeatedly that they are concerned with the development of their child's whole being, and we are committed to that development.
Our mission statement, The King’s Academy is a Christ-centered school that inspires academic excellence, servant leadership, and enduring relationships, is at the core of everything we do. We address your child’s academic needs and spiritual needs as well as give them many opportunities to grow in the arts, athletics, and as leaders. The King’s Academy uses chapels, Bible classes, service trips, and class retreats to help your student grow in their relationship with God and man (Luke 2:52). I encourage you to read our Core Values which detail our commitment to your child.
Year after year, The King’s Academy is rated as one of the best Private Christian schools in California (ranked #1 Best Christian High School in San Francisco Bay area and #8 in California by Niche), and our goal is to be come the number one school in CA. Come by and visit TKA and see what makes us special. Drop by for one of our Open House events or one of our many athletic competitions or fine arts performances. Let our wonderful Admission’s Director, Michele Duncan, take you on a tour and answer any questions you may have. You will find that our staff and students are always welcoming, and you can see firsthand the TKA difference.
TKA really is a special place. I hope you take the time to come and visit us at The King’s Academy, and I look forward to meeting you at one of our events!

When faced with a war, pandemic, or any conflict, we should meditate on God's word. Remember His promises to us; that He loves us and cares for us. Have faith that He is in control. Replace fear with a sound mind as Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 1:7, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
This week, I read an article by Joel Hazard, a Christian educator in Texas, that encouraged Christian schools to discuss the contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His article challenged me to investigate Dr. King's significance and his work for social equality in the United States.
