Resident Life

Dormitory Family 2013

The King’s Academy resident life program is about family and community.  Close friendships that students develop often last a lifetime. TKA has a healthy resident life community led by dorm directors and staff who create a safe, supportive, compassionate, and respectful family environment.

Just as TKA becomes a “home away from home” for resident life students, dorm directors and staff become “parents away from home” for the students. TKA resident life staff are teachers and coaches and have high moral character. They invest time getting to know their students and support and encourage them academically, socially, physically, and spiritually. Dorm directors and staff live with the students in the dormitories and are fully involved in parenting the students. Dorm directors review each student’s grades weekly and assign students to one of two facilitated study halls according to each student’s academic progress.

Activities are scheduled with the student’s work load as a priority. Most of the activities are optional, allowing the students to prioritize their academic responsibilities. Optional activities may include hiking, outdoor experiences, shopping, movies and theme parks. Some examples of activities on campus in which students may participate include football and basketball games, talent show and international food fest.

All resident life students will have the opportunity to travel to several destinations throughout the southeastern United States. Historically, resident life students have visited Myrtle Beach, SC, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and Snowshoe Mountain Ski Resort in Snowshoe, WV.
