Your College & Academic Counseling Team

The college admissions process is a pivotal period in a high school student’s life and is a process that involves the whole family. We desire to come alongside our students and families throughout the process to make it personal, meaningful, and targeted to individual needs. We demystify the process to empower students to apply to colleges that are best suited to them, emotionally and academically, allowing them to connect beyond the classroom. 

The King’s Academy places a high value on guiding students through the college and academic planning process so students become more aware of their unique set of talents and strengths.  Through the process, students feel confident in selecting the college or university that best matches their personal, career, and life goals.  

By asking the right type of questions, and through careful introspection and consideration, we work together to find a set of colleges and universities that are best aligned with your child’s academic and extracurricular interests, career aspirations, and financial aid requirements.  Our primary goal is to help students find the best “fit”  institution where they will be successful and thrive during this important phase of their lives.

Our primary mission is to enable students to use their God-given gifts in pursuit of their life’s calling with confidence and maturity.
