“Every day I am encouraged and inspired by the legacy of academic and spiritual excellence imparted to me by my years as a student at the academy. When I look into the eyes of my students, I see children of God, and take my responsibility to serve them seriously, as my gifted and dedicated teachers did for me at [The King's Academy].”
- Carmen Brown (Class of 1988), Teacher, Knoxville, TN

Visiting The King’s Academy Campus

We have found over the years that visiting our campus is the best way for people to get to know us. Meeting members of the TKA family and walking around our historic, peaceful campus will give you the best sense of what being a TKA student is like. If possible, visit when you can experience the energy and enthusiasm of a regular school day between August and May.

Visiting The King’s Academy campus will give you the opportunity to talk with the Admissions Director, students and faculty. Prospective boarding students will have the opportunity to meet the resident life staff and see the dorms. The Admissions Director will meet with you personally and discuss your interests and activities, and to help guide you through your next steps.

Of course, if you live in Africa or Asia or another location where you can’t simply come by our campus for lunch, we know that a visit will be difficult. We will do our best to help you come to know and see our campus through conversations with staff, pictures and video. We have found that communicating via Skype is helpful.  We want you to have all the information you need to make one of the most important decisions of your life.
