Private School Satellite Program
The King’s Academy Private School Satellite Program (PSP) provides support for homeschooled families with children in grades K-12. The basic program includes academic record maintenance, legal coverage, curriculum selection assistance, group activities, and one-to-one consultation with experienced leadership. PSP students are on The King's Academy affidavit.
PSP students in good standing are welcome to participate in TKA extracurricular activities and may also enroll in TKA courses on campus as “selected class” students. Extracurricular activities include Junior-Senior Banquet, TKA grade-level fall retreats, and the Tecate service trip (high school only). To participate in high school athletics, PSP students must be enrolled in 20-semester credits of classes at The King’s Academy.
Frequently Asked Questions
No. By California law, students can only be enrolled in one school. This means that students cannot be enrolled in The King’s Academy PSP and at the same time be enrolled as a full-time student of record in another school such as an online school, a charter school, another PSP, or a family’s Private School Affidavit.

Students may take classes from outside teachers or tutors who can help with paperwork, but the parent is still responsible for submitting the paperwork to our PSP office.
