Philosophy of Education

When Moses was preparing the Israelites to enter the Promised Land, he gave them this counsel:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” – Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Moses knew that Israelite children needed consistent, daily training to mature into adults who would remain faithful to God. The same is true today, especially in a culture that challenges young people to reject even the most basic truths about the reality of God and the nature and purpose of humankind. Without consistent, daily training in God’s truth, today’s children are just as likely as the Israelites were to embrace wrong ideas that would prevent them from experiencing God’s love and salvation. They will be tempted to believe lies that will sabotage their ability to experience God’s beautiful design for marriage, the family, and holy, abundant living. As a result, our beloved children will likely experience great suffering and bequeath the same to their children.

King’s Academy stands with parents and the Church in their efforts to raise children who will know they are created in the image of God, who will embrace their identity as sons and daughters of the King. We understand that there is no such thing as “values free education,” and that all teaching reflects the teacher’s view of the world, whether or not they are aware of it. Therefore, we create a school culture that aligns with biblical values. We hire teachers who love God, who believe the Bible is God’s Word, and who genuinely love students. We select curriculum that supports God’s truth and engage in age-appropriate, lively discussion about meaningful subjects. We engage in worship, prayer, and Bible classes daily. We do this in a spirit of warmth, caring, and joy, so that students are inspired to seek Christ, neither pressured nor compelled. We prepare King’s Academy students to think critically and independently so that they are prepared to make wise choices as adults.
