The King’s Academy (TKA) was birthed from a burden placed on the hearts of local parents, teachers, and community church leaders for a Christian school in northern Berks County which would provide not only a biblical world view of academics but also an educational program of the highest caliber. A steering committee began meeting in the fall of 1997, and the foundational components to form a school were put in place. The first day of school for The King’s Academy occurred in September of 1998.
God’s hand on the mission and vision for TKA continued as a building with property was purchased. In September of 1999, the second year of The King’s Academy opened on the new campus in Mohrsville. It became clear almost from the start that the school would quickly outgrow the confines of the new building. Fortuitously, an opportunity to purchase modular classrooms from a neighboring school district presented itself and in the summer a structure consisting of 8 additional classrooms was erected on the campus to house grades 7 through 12.
The first few years for TKA was an exciting season as God brought to fruition a school He had called into being, but little did those integral at the start fully grasp all God had planned for His school. While God in the early days quickly put in place a basic infrastructure to house TKA, the mission and vision to develop strong leaders both academically and spiritually endures. Currently in our 18th school year of operation, God continues to refine and grow our organization with amazing results and excitement for what the future holds.
We are an independent Christian school and not a ministry of any particular church. In fact, we represent over 50 Christian churches from Berks and Schuylkill counties. Our Statement of Faith is evangelical and Christ-centered.
In August of 1998, The King's Academy committed to preparing children for life as Christian leaders. Through the faithfulness of God and the generosity of his people, The King's Academy has been able to impact thousands of students from Berks and Schuylkill counties. Giving to TKA is a tangible way to help make this possible.
