School Notes

  • Founded in 1880, formerly known as Harrison-Chilhowee Baptist Academy, The King`s Academy has served generations of students in the pursuit of a biblically-based, academically rigorous K3-12 education. While the heritage of The King`s Academy is rich and deep, it is our belief that our best days as an institution remain ahead of us as we seek to develop servant leaders who will change the world for Christ.
  • At the heart of all we do at TKA are three guiding principles; Faith, Family, Future. We seek excellence in academics, athletics, fine arts, and extracurricular activities to be able to fully hone and sharpen students` God-given gifts so they will find themselves prepared for the future.
