King’s Academy (KA) Lower Academy is currently a Kindergarten-5th grade tutorial. We partner with parents to provide an education that challenges their student’s minds and shapes their hearts to pursue lifestyles rich in ongoing learning, healthy relationships with God and others, and the pursuit of meaningful work. Our staff aim to create an educational environment where students learn to value and experience the process of discovery rather than the completion of assignments and courses. KA passionately pursues the joy and privilege of coming alongside families in the holy endeavor of homeschooling.
As a homeschool support program designed to supplement a child’s home education, it is important parents recognize they are the primary provider of their child’s education.
Core Academic Program
The Core Academic Program meets on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm. Instruction is provided in grammar, writing, math, science, and history. Instructors may periodically include art, cooking, or music.
The Core Academic Program is taught by qualified Christian instructors. It is a “drop-off” program that requires no parent participation. The maximum capacity of each class is 16 students.
