How to apply to the King’s Academy

Thank you for your interest in The King’s Academy. Our desire is to provide a God-honoring journey for your family through the entire application process. TKA has limited enrollment, therefore, we will not be able to serve every family that applies. Instead, we strive to find students and families that we are best able to serve with our current resources and instructional program.
