Service Trips

Goal of Service Trips

TKA takes seriously our mandate to instill in our students a love for serving others. Each spring, TKA offers a variety of experiences to students, striving for a mix of local, domestic, and international trips. These experiences give students the opportunities to use their skills and talents to serve in the name of Jesus Christ, whether by building homes or playing with children.. Our flagship trip is to Tecate, Mexico, where we have been serving for twenty-eight years and have built nearly 400 homes.

Our vision is that each of our students receives a well-rounded education, and becomes a change agent in the world who serves and loves others in the name of Christ. For TKA, the goal of service is not to go somewhere and simply perform a service, but rather to engage in the full experience of service and to return having been transformed into a servant leader for life. 

Below are service trips that have been organized by TKA. Some trips are planned annually, and others are rotated periodically.

Service Trip Safety Guidelines

The King's Academy is continually monitoring threats and concerns that may affect the welfare of students on service trips. We regularly check the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization for health updates and the U.S. State Department for travel advisories. At no time will we organize a trip with a travel advisory to a country that exceeds a Level 2 warning. We are also in contact with partner organizations in our planned service locations. If at any point we, or the partnering organization, deem travel unsafe, we will not hesitate to modify our plans or call off travel to that area.
