In the fall of 2016, King’s Academy opened a middle school for grades 7 and 8. The addition of these grades allows King's to deepen its mission, extend the educational runway for students, and design a more powerful and integrated curriculum. Moreover, it will provide Upper School students with additional opportunities for growth, learning and leadership – as mentors, tutors, and big brothers and big sisters of younger students.
Drawing on His Majesty’s vision for King’s as a school open to all, King's has retained its commitment to educational accessibility, need-based financial aid and diversity at the Middle School. In addition, the middle years experience has been built around the distinctive strengths of the existing Upper School program – particularly the commitment to cultivating curiosity through active and interactive forms of learning, personalized instruction and advising, and the development of strong habits of study and character.
