The King's Academy Reviews
TKA is a great place to get by—the teachers are kind and competent, the atmosphere is laid-back, and if you want a cushy, uncompetitive educational experience, King's is a great choice.
However, as much as King's likes to tout the title of being a "college preparatory academy," this is pure fantasy. King's boasts lackluster academic opportunities and non-rigorous classes, a stark contrast to the excellent public and private schools in the area. While there is nothing inherently wrong with the low-stress style, their approach breeds a sinister culture of apathy.
There is no growth. Sure, King's students have Bible classes and mandatory chapel and even service trips, but when do they challenge their spirituality? When are they encouraged to be skeptical, to converse openly, to think? High school should be a time when we rebel a little, evaluate the status quo to find out what we hold dear, get pushed and push back. That is not TKA.
