President's Update

HCBA/TKA Alumni,

Greetings from 202 Smothers Road! I pray that each of you are doing well! Our last alumni update you received from last quarter was a picture of all that the Lord did through the previous academic year. I hope that you enjoyed the opportunity to see how the Lord has moved in such mighty ways.

This newsletter is intended to provide highlights on what is occurring on campus, opportunities for alumni involvement, and ways that you can pray and support the efforts of The King's Academy.

I am pleased to report that TKA has been blessed with an 11% enrollment increase at the start school year, and despite dealing with the pandemic, the school has seen a very successful year in our classrooms, fields of competition, etc. The heart of our leadership team, faculty, and staff is to develop servant leaders that will change the world for Christ. We are excited to see students from the following nations join our Lion family: Aruba, Brazil, Czech Republic, China, Croatia, Curacao, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Montenegro, Rwanda, and Uganda.

I have fully enjoyed the opportunity to get to know many of our esteemed alumni and cherish the stories and impacts that are shared with me on a weekly basis. I would like to personally invite you to participate in an upcoming alumni activity/event or to drop by campus when you are in the area. I look forward to getting to know as many of you as possible in the days and weeks ahead.

In Christ,

Jeremy Sandefur
