Mission statement

The King's Christian Academy exists to help parents and churches educate their children in truth and righteousness with academic excellence based on the Biblical worldview for Christian character development.

Statement of faith

The following has been adopted as the official doctrinal position of The King's Christian Academy. All Biblical instruction shall be in conformity to these commonly held doctrines of historic Christianity. Denominational distinctive shall be left to the individual churches and shall not be taught within the school.

We believe in one God, Creator and Sustainer of all things - eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, and in His substitutionary and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, and in His Ascension to the right hand of the Father.
We believe that man was created as a unique being in the image of God to have dominion over the earth, but man fell into sin and is, therefore, lost and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation be obtained.
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus become believers.
We believe that the true church is composed of all such persons who, through saving faith in Jesus are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus become believers.
We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ and that this blessed hope has a vital bearing on the personal life of the believer.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting punishment.

The Bible is God's revelation to man and is our final authority in all areas of life.
God is the creator and sustainer of all things and in Him resides all truth and only as we know Him can we completely know anything. Col. 1: 16-17
Man is made in the image of God and created for His glory.
Because of man's depravity through sin he is inherently evil, and his only hope for restoration to God is through regeneration provided by Jesus Christ.
The primary responsibility for the education of a child lies with the parent.
The Christian school is an extension of the Christian home, and both work together in harmony with the Christian church.
The school is responsible to educate the total child - spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially; however, the primary responsibility of the school is for the intellectual development of the child.
Since all truth is God's truth, every subject must be taught from a Biblical prospective.
Students are responsible to submit to the authority of the school and to actively support its program.
The school has the responsibility of a Biblical stewardship of its authority.
The teacher represents the parent.
The school is responsible to civil authority unless contrary to the teachings of the Bible.
Since we are involved in a spiritual warfare, we must be prepared not only to combat ignorance but also deception and opposition.
All personnel involved in the entire curriculum must be thoroughly committed to the Christian philosophy of education, and thoroughly Christian in character.
We recognize the disciplinary aspect of education which is based on the Word of God, and which is necessary for good instruction and good learning to take place. This includes both reward and punishment.
The Biblical view of teaching is that the instructor has a directive posture in the class as opposed to a passive one.
As a Christian school, we recognize that we have supernatural resources through prayer and the Holy Spirit and that they must be given priority in the Administration of our schools.
