History of The King's Academy

 In 1989, seven Florence families came together with a common vision and goal: to provide quality education for their children in a Christ-centered environment. The vision included the desire to encourage the students to grow mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually - recognizing each one’s unique gifts and abilities while encouraging them to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. 

 In 1990, The King’s Academy was established and became an independently chartered, non-denominational Christian school. The school began with 1 teacher and 13 students ranging from 1st-6th grade. Trinity Presbyterian Church graciously allowed the school to meet in its youth building. As the school grew, Trinity embraced TKA as a ministry of the church and the two have continued to share property and facilities.

God has blessed the school and as TKA has grown, it has expanded both in numbers and in the programs it is able to offer. In 1997 TKA added a high school and presently houses Kindergarten through 12th grade. Current enrollment stands at approximately 350 and employs more than 50 faculty and staff members.
