Lions Weekly: April 17, 2024


A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Family,

As we find ourselves in the midst of standardized IOWA testing for our elementary students and wrapping up testing for our middle schoolers, I am filled with pride and excitement for the continued growth and academic performance demonstrated by our students. These assessments provide valuable insights into their progress and development, showcasing the dedication and hard work of both our students and educators. I am confident that the results will reflect the exceptional commitment to excellence that defines The King's Academy.

While academic achievement is certainly a cause for celebration, let us not overlook the importance of spiritual growth in the lives of our students. As outlined in our graduate profile, we are committed to nurturing unapologetically Christ-like students who are not only critical thinkers but also grounded in their faith. Ultimately, it is their relationship with Christ that shapes their character, guides their decisions, and prepares them to make a positive impact on the world around them. As we prioritize their spiritual development alongside their academic success, we strive to equip our students with the tools they need to thrive both inside and outside the classroom.

As we await the results of the standardized testing and continue to witness the growth and achievements of our students, let us remain steadfast in our commitment to excellence and to the mission of The King's Academy. Together, let us celebrate the remarkable journey of growth, learning, and faith that defines the TKA experience.

In Christ,

Jeremy Sandefur
President/Head of School
