WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA—On Wednesday April 20th, The King’s Academy celebrated with their school family, students, faculty and community members as they broke ground on an important new addition to its campus- the Esther B. O’Keeffe Innovation Center!
The King’s Academy is proud to announce this year’s keynote speaker, Tim Tebow, for its High School Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2022. Mr. Tebow is a two-time NCAA football national champion with the Florida Gators, first-round NFL draft pick, and Heisman Trophy winner. In addition, he serves as a college football analyst for ESPN. Tim Tebow grew up as the son of missionaries and has returned to the Philippines a number of times to spread God's Word and do the Lord's work by serving the needy. He also founded the Tim Tebow Foundation which exists to bring faith, hope, and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need. He is a nationally-known speaker, football analyst, and author who often addresses pursuing one’s dreams and discovering one’s true identity in the midst of life’s storms through faith in God.
The King’s Academy’s Digital Media Arts department recently released its first full length feature film, “The Fountain of Youth.” Written by Department Chair and Director Austin Parenti and produced by students and faculty from TKA, "The Fountain of Youth" tells the story of a high school history teacher, Mr. Asher June, adventuring across Florida to discover eternal waters and save his mother from a terminal disease, all while dodging a competitor—a washed-up celebrity survivalist.
November 15th is recognized as National Philanthropy Day; a day set aside to reflect on the value of giving and the positive outcomes that can occur when we all contribute to the common good. On this important day, The King’s Academy had much to celebrate as they announced a very generous and significant gift from the Esther B. O’Keeffe Charitable Foundation.
On October 22, The King’s Academy held a special Dedication Ceremony to rename the TKA Café to The Smith Family Café in recognition of a transformative gift from Ms. Jan Smith, a TKA grandparent.
