About King's Academy
Why We Do What We Do…
Thank you for your interest in King’s Academy Christian School. Thirty years ago, the Carnegie Foundation surveyed 22,000 teachers. Ninety percent of the teachers surveyed said that the lack of parental support was a major problem in the education of the students. Since the study in 1988, the situation in schools has not improved. Parental involvement has decreased. The University-Model® school is committed to changing that fact.
We seek to partner with you to train a generation for the glory of God through Christian education. Comprehensive communication between parents and the school is essential for every family.
What can King’s Academy do for you? If you are in search of an educational option that allows time to be given back to the family in the area of educational and biblical development, then King’s Academy is for you! Our students are divided into an upper and lower campus, with lower campus students (K-5th) attending classes on either Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, or Tuesday and Thursdays. Upper campus students (6th-12th) attend classes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students also have additional on-campus tutoring and elective options on Wednesdays. On the off days, students are at home with you working on teacher-assigned work.
We invite you to join us in this exciting and productive path to follow God’s lead through our fully accredited educational program. We challenge you to catch the vision and become a part of a school that focuses on God and family first!
Partnering with families to equip students for a Christ-centered life.
1. A Biblical Foundation
All education is inescapably Christian in that all truth is God’s truth. The Bible, as the infallible, inerrant, and inspired Word of God, is the foundation and guide for all knowledge and basic to all elements of education. Because God created, sustains, and will consummate all things through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, the universe and all life are dynamically related to Him and have the purpose of glorifying Him. This purpose is fundamental to Christian education and will permeate every aspect of our goals and objectives, our teaching methods, and our curriculum. All representatives of the school will strive to demonstrate and teach values, character, and “Christ-likeness” as well as facts.
2. Preparing Each Student for Life
The primary goal of all Christian education is to prepare each student to glorify and honor God in all that he does. We seek to fulfill this goal by:
– Training and encouraging students to become committed disciples of Christ
– Supporting the family as the primary social and educational unit instituted by God
– Promoting personal responsibility for academic excellence and a strong work ethic
– Integrating home and school for the development of life skills and strong Christian character in balance with academics and co-curricular activities.
– Students will be encouraged to assume personal responsibility for learning as part of the maturation process. We expect King’s Academy students to be prepared for pursuing any chosen profession, through rigorous academic instruction and discipline. They will also be committed to a lifetime of learning and service to their families, their churches, and their communities through an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.
3. Emphasizing the Parents’ Role
We recognize that parents are commanded to rear their children for God’s glory by bringing them up in the nurture and discipline of the Lord (Deut. 6; Eph. 6:4). The home, therefore, is to be a place of training and teaching one’s own children as is seen from God’s command. Yet, the home is not the only established agency of instruction from the Biblical standpoint. The community of believers, the church, is commanded and authorized by God for training and discipling. King’s Academy is designed to enable parents to more adequately fulfill the Lord’s commands for education and training of children for His glory. King’s Academy will seek to provide parents with academic expertise, challenge, pacing, direction, and accountability, in a way that enhances and assists the parents’ efforts at teaching their children. The parents’ role is to oversee their child’s education and academic progress. Parents have flexibility in determining what courses the child will take at the school and what training will be received at home. Parents share joint responsibility with the school for properly placing students, for helping them build the character qualities and work ethic that lead to academic success (and success in general), and for encouraging students to accept increasing responsibility for the consequences of their actions. The parental teaching role ranges from direct instruction in cooperation with the classroom teacher to monitoring of student progress, as the student progresses from elementary to high school. King’s Academy is committed to providing a vital learning experience for students that encourages and facilitates the parent/child relationship. Parents are the single most influential factor in a child’s educational performance.
God has given our school eight initiatives to promote overall excellence and future development:
- Prayer and Faith
KACS is a result of faith in God and reliance on Him to meet all needs. We will strive to build faith in God’s work in the school by communicating prayer needs and answers through a variety of methods and prayer opportunities.
- “God Is”
Recognizing God’s sovereignty in all things, we commit to teach a biblical worldview through resources, training, sharing, and communicating.
- Strengthening Families
We desire to strengthen families by providing opportunities for relationship within and among families, affirming a biblical model of family life, providing practical training for parents to educate at home, and respecting family priorities and schedules.
We commit to communicate through written and verbal means accurate information about who we are, what we do, and what God does in every relationship within the school and our communities. We will listen to and use consistent, honest feedback to evaluate our strengths and weaknesses throughout all channels of communication. We will always communicate in a way that seeks first to understand and then to be understood.
KACS staff members are called by God to serve as Christian role models because of their gift for teaching and love for children. Staff members are subject-qualified and have high expectations while nurturing students in a respectful Christian manner.
KACS leadership has a calling to Christian education that demonstrates focus, commitment, and servant attitude. The Board is composed of diverse members who recognize their strength and authority resides in the group, not individual members.
In striving to be excellent, KACS will honor Christian character and conviction in all things; pursue high standards in academics, co-curricular activities, image, and facilities; and expect excellence from all parents, staff, and students. Our commitment to excellence is demonstrated through Christian teachers teaching a Christian curriculum while modeling Christian values in a challenging environment.
- Use of the Tongue
We realize the tongue is one of the most significant threats to God’s work at KACS. Therefore, we expect each other to use the tongue in a manner that praises God, encourages and heals, speaks the truth, is sensitive to all faiths, and seeks to build and not destroy. When we fail, we will be eager to repent, forgive, or correct those offenses, as the Bible requires.
Statement of Faith
- We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (2 Timothy 3:15; 2 Peter 1:21).
- We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three beings – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30).
- We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); and His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).
- We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone we are saved (John 3:16-19; 5:24; Romans 3:23; 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5).
- We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5: 28-29).
- We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12: 12-13; Galatians 3:26-28).
- We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30; 5:18).
Non-Denominational Position: KACS’s Statement of Faith is fundamental to basic Christian tenets and contains those doctrines to which we unreservedly adhere and teach. Believers interpret the Bible differently on some secondary issues and a concerted effort will be made by staff and Board members not to promote or disparage any doctrinal or denominational beliefs, practices, or positions regarding issues upon which the ministry itself has assumed no official stance. If a secondary doctrine is mentioned at KACS, an effort will be made to refer elementary students their parents and church for instruction. Upper school students may discuss differences in a respectful way. We desire to remain united in the salvation and love of Christ while avoiding the dissension that may be caused by denominational differences.
Marriage and Human Sexuality: We are committed to the home and family as presented in Holy Scripture. We believe God has ordained and created marriage to exist between one man and one woman, with absolute marital fidelity.
The Bible teaches that sexual acts outside marriage are prohibited and sinful. KACS believes that all sin and fall short of the glory of God and should seek redemption through confession, repentance, baptism, and faith in Jesus Christ. Consequently, KACS members must welcome and treat with respect, compassion, and sensitivity all who experience same-sex attractions or confess sexually immoral acts but are committed to resisting sexual temptation, refraining from sexual immorality, and conforming their behavior to the KACS Statement of Faith.
