President's Update

HCBA/TKA Alumni,

As we reflect on the closing chapters of the first semester, I'm delighted to share the incredible strides and memorable moments that have marked our journey so far. The halls of The King's Academy have echoed with laughter, camaraderie, and the unmistakable sense of belonging that defines our close-knit community. From the spirited festivities of Homecoming to the warmth of our Fall Festival, each event has been a testament to the enduring spirit of TKA.

In these past months, we've embarked on exciting ventures, one of which is our new podcast, "Legacy Matters: Conversations on Faith, Family, and Future." It's a platform where the heartbeats of our shared experiences resound, and I encourage each of you to listen in. Athletics, too, have flourished, with our teams exhibiting not just skill but the unmistakable character that defines a TKA athlete.

As we eagerly anticipate the second semester, the Love Gala stands as a beacon on the horizon. It's an invitation to come together once more, to reminisce, celebrate, and support the incredible legacy that is The King's Academy. Your presence is not just desired; it's an integral part of what makes these gatherings truly special. Here's to a joyous holiday season and the promise of many more shared moments in the semesters to come.

In Christ,

Jeremy Sandefur
