The first TKA Preschool was opened in 2008 as an extension to The King’s Academy which was established in 1970.
The King’s Academy (TKA) is a private, nonprofit, college-preparatory, interdenominational Christian school. TKA is a school community consisting of two year olds through 12th Grade. The school is overseen by a Board of Governors and operated by the President and the Administrative Team. The academic program is designed to challenge motivated students of good moral character who are in the middle to upper range of academic ability. Named to honor Jesus Christ, the King of kings, The King’s Academy offers high academic and spiritual standards as an aid to each student in his spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical development. Emphasis is placed on patriotism, self-discipline, and Godly morality from a Christ-centered philosophy of education. Denominational issues are avoided. King’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 harmonizes with Christ and the Bible. Established in 1970, under the leadership of the original Board of Governors, The King’s Academy began with 196 students in a rented church building. Since 1971, The King’s Academy has shown continual growth and moved from its long-time home on the twenty-acre Cherry Road campus to the new sixty-acre Belvedere Road campus in 2005 – dedicated to the King of kings and Lord of lords. The King’s Academy has an interdenominational faculty of born-again, certified teachers.
