Round Square and Community Service
“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give,” is a quote by author Khalil Gibran that reflects the spirit of service at King’s Academy.
Membership in the King’s Academy community is a privilege, one which comes with the responsibility of sharing our opportunities with those outside our community, especially those in need. It is a chance to give back as well as to receive. We must recognize that service is not a one-way conduit, but rather the chance to form significant human bonds as we recognize our commonality and to enhance our collective wisdom and understanding. As a result, community service is a major focus of life at King’s Academy. Students and faculty participate in various forms of service in the community, ranging from fundraising drives and raising awareness about cancer, to initiatives to show gratitude to staff and faculty and English, math and coding tutoring programs, to working with refugee children, patients with disabilities and the elderly, to building homes for less privileged families around the kingdom, summer volunteering opportunities and working with nonprofit social service organizations on environmental, educational and social welfare issues. Through the inspiration of His Majesty King Abdullah II, it is the school's plan to include all students and faculty in King’s Academy volunteerism.
