Grounded in the liberal arts and sciences, the academic program at King's Academy provides opportunities for both breadth and depth of study. We offer Advanced Placement exams in 24 subjects, as well as a variety of electives in history, religion and the arts, including courses in vocal and instrumental music, dance, theater, sculpture, drawing and painting.
In the fall of 2016, King’s Academy opened a middle school for grades 7 and 8. The addition of these grades allowed King's to deepen its mission, extend the educational runway for students, and design a more powerful and integrated curriculum. Moreover, it has provided Upper School students with additional opportunities for growth, learning and leadership – as mentors, tutors, and big brothers and big sisters of younger students.
We stress canonical approaches to the acquisition of understanding, as well as less traditional means, such as collaborative small group work, individual research, and a "portfolio" approach, in which students demonstrate their understanding through projects and activities, not just through exams.
