Meet The King's Christian School:

The King’s Christian School was founded in 1946 as a parent-sponsored Christian school dedicated to its mission statement, “In partnership with Christian parents, The King’s Christian School equips and strengthens students, through education and example, that they might stand firmly upon the Word of God and become effective servant-leaders who impact the world through their Christian walk.” The commitment to this mission continues today. Twenty-first-century technology and “green” campus facilities continue to position TKCS as a resource for families in an ever-changing world. More than 98% of graduates continue their academic studies at nationwide colleges and universities.

The King’s Christian School is a non-denominational, college-preparatory school for students in grades Kindergarten through 12. TKCS is owned and governed by The King’s Christian School Association, which maintains a constitution, adopts the school budget, and elects the Board of Directors.
