Mission & Philosophy

The King’s Academy exists to assist the home and church in their endeavor to “train up a child in the way he should go” .  Its mission is to graduate Christian leaders who seek to impact their world for the King of kings through academic excellence and spiritual vitality. Proverbs 22:6

Philosophy:

  • God’s Word is inerrant, providing an absolute standard (II Timothy 3:16).
  • Man is basically sinful and in need of salvation (Psalms 51:5, 58:3; Romans 3:10-12, 23; James 1:13-15; Jeremiah 17:9).
  • The Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to earth to die for our sins (John 3:16).
  • Salvation comes through faith in Christ’s payment for sin on the cross (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • Since God’s Word is applicable to every area of man’s life, all subjects must be taught from a Biblical perspective (Colossians 1:17, 3:17; Romans 11:36; Hebrews 4:12).
  • Since students often emulate their teacher, the teacher must be born-again and a model pleasing to God (Matthew 18:6; Ezra 7:10; James 3:1; John 17:19).
  • The teacher must be dedicated to the task to which he is called (Romans 12:1).
  • The classroom should be teacher-centered, rather than student-centered, in the sense that the teacher is the authority (Romans 13:1; Hebrews 13:17).
  • Students need direction, challenge, and supervision (Proverbs 29:15).
  • Students need both positive and negative feedback (Proverbs 3:27; 23:13).
  • The teacher stands in place of the parent (Hebrews 13:17).
  • Each student is valuable in God’s sight (Matthew 10:31).
  • God expects each student to work at his fullest God-given potential (Matthew 25:14-30; Ecclesiastes 9:10; Colossians 3:23-24).
  • The home, school, and church should complement each other (Amos 3:3).
  • The Christian school should supplement, not supplant, the local church (Hebrews 10:25).
  • Students need a well-rounded education – spiritual, mental, social, and physical (I Corinthians 10:31; Luke 2:52).

School Motto: TKA’s motto, fiat lux (let there be light), acknowledges Jesus as the light of the world and that all illumination must come from Him. For this reason, all subject matter at TKA must harmonize with Christ and the Bible.
