A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Family,
As we step into another week here at The King's Academy, I'm reminded of the incredible privilege we have in nurturing the hearts and minds of our students. Our commitment to excellence extends beyond academics; it encompasses character development and spiritual growth. Our journey together, in pursuit of academic excellence and spiritual enrichment, is an ongoing testament to the incredible community that makes TKA so unique.

As we enter this week, let's focus on one of our core graduate profile attributes – being a "Critical Thinker." In Proverbs 14:15, it is written, "The simple believe anything, but the prudent give thought to their steps." Critical thinking is a hallmark of a well-rounded education, and it's central to our mission of nurturing students who can navigate the world with discernment and wisdom.

In a world filled with information, it's crucial that our students not only absorb knowledge but also learn how to evaluate it critically. This involves questioning, analyzing, and seeking a deeper understanding of the world around them. As parents and educators, we play a vital role in fostering this skill, guiding our students to engage thoughtfully with both the academic and spiritual aspects of their lives. Remember, our goal is not to tell them what to think but to teach them how to think – with reason, insight, and, most importantly, through the lens of their faith.

Thank you for entrusting us with your children's education and spiritual development. Together, we are nurturing the critical thinkers and faithful believers who will make a profound impact on the world. May God bless you and our TKA community abundantly in the coming week.

In Christ,

Jeremy Sandefur
President/Head of School
