"Whoever desires to be great among you, let him be your servant. And whoever desires to be first, let him be our slave - just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." - Matthew 20:26-28.
One of the primary aims of The King’s Academy is to build Christian leaders. Our Student Council, Class Officers, Spiritual Life Internship, and Worship Team Program give our students opportunities to learn how to lead in a ministry context. Some of the ministries with the most impact at TKA are student initiated and executed. Chapels, clubs, trips, and retreats all have elements which are led by students. Our hope and prayer is for students to take the skills and experiences they have gained and use them to serve our Lord throughout their lives.
Our Christian faith is woven into every aspect of our school. It should be noted that to serve in a TKA leadership position, a student must be trusting in Jesus Christ alone for their salvation, and demonstrate an active faith and a growing love for the Lord.
The Student Council at The King's Academy is a ten-member body elected by the entire student body each spring. The Student Council meets as a class four days a week under the supervision of the Spiritual Life department. They plan and help facilitate a variety of community-building events such as Carnival, Movie Nights and Spirit Week. Additionally, they serve as ambassadors for the school at events such as Open House and Back-to-School Night for parents.
Each grade also elects four officers (President, Vice President, Special Events Coordinator, Promotions Coordinator) to lead activities designed to promote class bonding and spiritual growth. The officers work hand-in-hand with staff members serving as Class Advisors.
