We welcome you to apply to King's Academy!

King's Academy enrolls students who not only excel academically but who also demonstrate strong values, a desire to lead, maturity, adaptability, curiosity and creativity. As part of the admissions process, King's also considers a student's interest outside of class, including athletics, the arts, hobbies and other activities.

Families are encouraged to fill out an inquiry form and should contact the Office of Admissions if they have specific questions about the admission process.

Apply Early

Students who are certain they want to enroll at King’s Academy next year are encouraged to apply for admissions under Early Decision. These are binding decisions, meaning the family must promise to enroll the student if he or she is admitted to King’s through Early Decision.

Early decision candidates will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee and then notified of the admission decision within two weeks after the completion of the application process. Financial aid is not available for Early Decision applicants.

Families need to complete this early decision intention form and return it to the Office of Admissions to be considered.
