From the President
Welcome to The King’s Academy!
All parents want their child to attend an excellent school—not just a good one. The King’s Academy has been an excellent source of education for my family, first for my wife Heidi during the school’s early years and more recently as both my daughter Kristi and son Kyle have graduated from TKA. All attended King’s from Kindergarten through 12th grade, and TKA thoroughly prepared each of my family members for college and for life—inspiring Heidi and Kristi to pursue teaching careers and Kyle to seek to become a lawyer. Each made life-changing decisions for Christ during their years at King’s, and Kristi and Kyle were active in athletics and the arts as well as benefited from numerous dual enrollment, advanced placement, and honors courses. They both broadened their horizons by travelling extensively on school trips to Spain, Iceland, Ireland, Hawaii, New York City, and Washington DC. My son’s valedictory address and my children’s stage performances at King’s have also opened college and career opportunities for them as these videos have been viewed millions of times worldwide. In short, my family is forever grateful for TKA’s impact!
When I think about my family’s life-altering experience at The King’s Academy, one common link emerges: excellent teachers. Excellent teachers understand that the best in education involves more than just teaching the mind—it begins with reaching the heart. Master teachers understand that students aren’t just interested in finding out how much a teacher knows but how much a teacher cares.
Thankfully, teachers at TKA see themselves as “living curriculum” for our students. Besides being experts in their fields of study, they are all Christ followers, prayerful servant leaders, relationship builders and encouragers, thoughtful communicators, hard-working educators, and engaging instructors. I believe that these characteristics set our faculty apart from others found in South Florida and make The King’s Academy the excellent school that it is. We are so blessed to have these outstanding men and women leading our students.
In addition to our excellent teachers, The King’s Academy is also blessed with many other qualities of an excellent school:
· A modern, secure, and growing campus with state-of-the-art infrastructure supporting the latest in learning technology.
