Reasons for Re-Enrollment

The weather has taken a beautiful turn for the better.  It is warming up, flowers are blooming, and it appears the rain has stopped.  Although with an El Nino year, it is quite possible we will see more rain.  

Around TKA, this is the time of year when our families  are re-enrolling. Currently, we are at 94% re-enrollment.  That leaves very little room for new students, and all the more reason to complete the re-enrollment process in the Parent Portal or contact the  Business Office ASAP.

So why exactly is our percentage of re-enrollment so high this year?  Here are a few reasons why I think our parents are continuing to partner with us at The King’s Academy:

  • Commitment to academic principles (adding 3 new AP courses, adding Mandarin as a new foreign language, and an increased focus on elective offerings)

  • Commitment to technology (adding the Apple pilot program and Google Chromebooks)

  • CCS dominance this year in sports.  Our teams have been phenomenal this year and are getting better.

  • Commitment to VPA excellence. The King’s Strings,  Knightshine, Winter Guard, and Winter Percussion have all achieved top placement in recent competitions.

  • Continued daily focus on the spiritual development of our students.

And while these factors are some of the main reasons parents choose The King’s Academy, I know there are other issues that shape parents’ perspectives when choosing a school.  Take the recent position of the San Francisco School Board, and it is easy to see why many parents are opting out of the public schools and seeking alternatives.  At The King's Academy, we are partnering with our parents, and I believe the historical enrollment shows a high satisfaction with our school. Even external reviewers are recognizing The King's Academy as seen in this recent Niche ranking of the "2016 Best Christian High Schools in California" where TKA is ranked 7th.

In the coming months, we will be verifying what is important to our parents. TKA will be working on its Strategic Plan, and focus groups will be meeting on campus to speak with our consultant.  He will be asking about the things that matter most to our parents.  

The future is bright at The King's Academy, and I am personally excited about the direction in which we are headed.
