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 Tuesday and Thursdays. Upper campus students (6th-12th) attend classes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. 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!
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 thatpraises 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
- One God in Three Persons
God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
- One Way of Salvation
Jesus Christ through His virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death, and victorious resurrection
made it possible for man to be saved by faith.
- One Book
Divinely inspired and protected, the Bible is God’s written revelation to man; it is totally
reliable and has no need of other documents to complete its message.
- One Body
…with many parts, the church.
These statements are based on fundamental Christian beliefs that we strongly support as the primary doctrine for teaching. King’s Academy does not promote or endorse any particular denomination. It is our desire to maintain this position for the purpose of unity and fairness to each student. Other doctrinal issues upon which this ministry has no official stance will be considered secondary doctrine and will not be taught. In the event secondary doctrine is brought up, students will be referred back to the family and church for final authority. We desire to remain united in the salvation and love of Christ, avoiding any dissension that may be caused by denominational differences.
