The spiritual growth of students is of first importance at The King’s Academy. Our highest aim is to see students come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior and walk with Him by faith throughout their life. As a school, we proclaim His excellencies in many ways and through various platforms. Through on-campus activities, mission trips, and service opportunities, our students learn to be servant leaders, a hallmark of the Christian faith.
Each week, students gather together to worship in song and hear an encouraging message from God’s word. Chapel allows students to step outside of the classroom and hear God’s word through different formats such as panel discussions, sermons, and Q&A sessions. During this time, students have the opportunity to hear from a variety of speakers ranging from nationally known pastors, athletes, and artists to local pastors and even TKA teachers. Overall, chapel is a time to both receive and respond; students receive a message and respond in worship. To find all of our chapel messages, click on this link to visit our YouTube channel:
In partnership with Hope Project International, TKA students have the opportunity to travel abroad to build homes for families in need. Students learn what it is like to join God in the work He is doing all around the world. A wonderful, enriching experience, this trip fills up quickly!
See You At The Pole
See You At The Pole is a student-led prayer event that occurs on the fourth Wednesday of September each year. This is a global day of student prayer that began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at their school. Now millions of students across the world meet at their school’s flagpole before the school day starts to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, nation, and world to God.
National Day of Prayer
Every year in the month of May, The King's Academy participates in the National Day of Prayer. On this day, staff and students have various opportunities to gather and pray with one another. Before school starts, the TKA community joins together for a time of worship and prayer. Then throughout the day, faculty, staff, and students have the opportunity to participate in a special prayer walk throughout the campus.
In an effort to support TKA’s mission to partner with the home and church in training our students in the faith, the spiritual life office has introduced a series of parent workshops offered to all 6-12th grade parents. These workshops help equip our parents with the necessary resources and tools to navigate the dilemmas of parenting in an ever-changing culture. By exploring relevant topics led by trained professionals, our hope is that parents feel supported and encouraged in the work they do at home.
Spiritual Emphasis Week
TKA’s Spiritual Emphasis Week consists of several different opportunities for students to grow in their faith and experience Christ’s love. The week begins with a morning worship time where students are invited to join their classmates in a time of worship and reflection before classes start. Students also have the chance to patriciate in lunch-time Bible studies, a local church fair where they can get connected to a local youth group, and experience two days of chapels where nationally known artists, authors, pastors, and athletes share a message of God’s love and grace. The week concludes with students extending the love of Christ by serving in a local service project for those in need.
Mentorship and discipleship is at the heart of everything we do at TKA. In order to provide more opportunities for upperclassmen to pour into the lives of younger students, our Group 3:16 includes a unique mentoring program called "3:16 Mentoring." This initiative partners senior Prefect leaders with 6th-8th grade students, and takes place twice per quarter during lunchtime. During this time, Prefects lead the discussion and have the opportunity to encourage, guide, and support younger students.
Group 3:16 Bible Study
Every other week, students can participate in a student-led Bible study called Group 3:16. The 3:16 study was started by a handful of students and continues to grow every year. Students are divided by grade levels and have unique offerings for their age group, studying content and material that is most applicable to their stage of life. In these studies, students also have the opportunity to hear devotionals from teachers, peers, and local pastors. This group is a great opportunity for students to gather with friends for fellowship and prayer each week.
Nights of Worship
All TKA families are invited to join us for our Christmas and Easter Nights of Worship. These events feature our TKA praise and worship team as well as student leaders retelling the story of Christ’s birth, death, and resurrection. We invite you to worship with us as we celebrate these holy days!
