The King's Academy Elementary School is focused on students' academic, spiritual and social growth. These areas are tailored to fulfill the mission of producing leaders impacting the world for Christ. ACADEMIC GROWTH TKA students continue to soar academically, as evidenced by increases in high standardized test scores. Learning comes to life through the utilization of technology in classrooms.
