Summer at King's Academy
SUMMER at KING’S ACADEMY in 2014 once again features fun, excitement and learning through a wide range of academic and athletic programs for both boarding and day students. From late June through July, students, youngsters and athletes from Jordan and the rest of the world will come to the beautiful and spacious King’s Academy campus in Madaba, Jordan to improve their skills in the classroom, the laboratory or on the playing fields.

- SAT Prep: Older students seeking to improve knowledge and skills necessary for scoring well on the SAT exam can participate in test prep courses developed and taught by experienced King’s Academy faculty.
- Sports and Recreation: For children aged six to 12, or for serious footballers aged 12 to 16, King’s offers many options for excellent training and competition or for just having fun playing and learning a new sport.
All SUMMER at KING’S ACADEMY programs reflect the school’s commitment to excellence and its reputation as one of the leading educational institutions in the Middle East.
Traditions and practices at King’s Academy reflect its setting in the heart of the Muslim world, so observance of Ramadan occurs naturally for the faculty and staff. SUMMER at KING’S ACADEMY will alter its regular daily schedule and provide appropriate meals to accommodate students who are observing Ramadan, which in 2014 will overlap with the program. The academic and activity schedule will be abbreviated during Ramadan. A pre-dawn suhoor meal will be served, along with an iftar meal after sundown. For non-Muslim or non-fasting students, regular breakfast and lunch will be served.
