A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Family,

Welcome back to a new school year filled with promise and purpose! As we conclude the first invigorating week of classes, I am reminded of the incredible journey we embark upon together. At the heartbeat of The King's Academy, it is our mission to develop servant leaders who will change the world for Christ. This is much more than just a statement; it's a calling that permeates every aspect of our school community.

Throughout this year, we will continue our unwavering commitment to fostering a Christ-centered environment where each student is nurtured, equipped, and empowered to discover their unique potential. Our dedicated faculty and staff are passionately devoted to not only imparting knowledge but also nurturing the spiritual growth of our students. Together, we stand united in our pursuit of excellence, guided by our shared values of faith, family, and a future that shines brightly in God's light.

As we navigate this academic year, let us remain focused on our noble mission. Through the ups and downs, challenges and triumphs, let us always remember that every action, every word, and every effort we invest in our students is a seed planted in the garden of servant leadership. I encourage you to stay engaged, support one another, and embrace the opportunities that lie ahead. Together, we will partner to inspire and empower the next generation of world-changing servant leaders.

In Christ,

Jeremy Sandefur
President/Head of School

Host Families

Host Family Update

TKA Family! As our Residence Life program continues to grow, we are still looking for two host families to join us! Being a host family for our Residence Life students doesn't entail shouldering their physical or financial needs. We understand that there might be misconceptions about the extent of this commitment. While many host families go above and beyond, forming deep bonds with the students, we want to emphasize that this isn't the expectation. We encourage you to step out in faith, embrace a new family member, and positively impact their future.

Visitor Policy

TKA Visitor Policy

In order to help maintain a safe and instructionally based learning environment for our students, all visitors for middle and high school must enter through the front door of the Anderson Building and sign in in the middle/high school office in order to receive a visitor's pass. All visitors for elementary must enter the front door of the Ogle Building in order to receive a visitor's pass. This pass should be visible at all times so that TKA faculty and staff know that you have checked in at the office.

Our doors are open to visitors, but please call ahead of time to schedule conferences with your child’s teachers. This will prevent interruptions to instruction and the loss of the valuable learning time of our students. Adults will not be allowed to wander the halls of the building or hold conferences with teachers during instructional times.

TKA family lunch visitors should follow the above procedure. Lunch tickets are $5 each.

Students who are not enrolled at TKA are not permitted to visit TKA students during the school day, which includes lunch.

This policy has been developed in order to help maintain a safe and instruction focused environment at school each day. Any visitor who does not meet these expectations may be asked to leave school grounds.
