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:
Group 3:16 Bible Study
Throughout the year, students can participate in a weekly Bible study called Group 3:16. This group meets during all lunch periods, every Tuesday, outside of the DiMino Student Union. In this study, students will be able to hear from their teachers, peers, and local pastors as they share from God's word and what He is doing in their lives. This group is a great opportunity for students to gather with friends for fellowship and prayer.
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.
Each Fall and Spring, we host RUSH, which is our spiritual emphasis week at TKA. This is a special time where we invite nationally known Christian speakers, authors, artists, and athletes such as Dallas Jenkins, Bob Goff, Robert Madu, Darryl Strawberry, J. Warner Wallace, and Sean McDowell. Along with hearing encouraging messages in chapels, students also have the opportunity to participate in a worship night this week. Students are also able to participate in a community service project at the end of RUSH week. Our hope and prayer is that students feel encouraged and renewed in their relationship with Christ at the end of this spiritual emphasis week.
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 7-9th 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.
Titus 2 is a mentoring program that occurs during chapel on select Thursdays throughout the year. These groups partner 11th & 12th grade student leaders with 5th graders for the purpose of encouragement, fellowship, and guidance. This is a great opportunity for older students to hone their mentorship skills as they encourage younger students.
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.
