Students at Summer at King's Academy put weekends to good use, with some activities planned for cultural immersion and some just for fun. Trips are planned to various historic sites, such as the Nabatean city of Petra, the biblical Dead Sea region and the historically and archaelogically fascinating Wadi Rum, where students will camp under the stars and trek among the massive rock formations.
For fun, students have the chance to go karting, enjoy water parks, shop at local malls, watch movies, go paintballing and more. Transportation to Friday prayers is an option available for students as part of our weekend schedule. All student activities and trips are chaperoned by Summer at King's Academy teachers and counselors.

Summer at King's Academy students live and learn in a secure campus of 575 dunums (144 acres) located 32 km southwest of the capital city of Amman – a 30 minute drive. Designed to reflect Levantine and Islamic cultural heritage, the campus blends modern innovation with the rich traditions of the region. A green lawn connects 33 campus buildings, including two academic centers, an auditorium, a 38,000 volume (and growing) library, a multi-faith spiritual center, a student union, a dining hall, an athletic center, a health center and various dormitories.
The campus was constructed in 2006, meaning facilities are state-of-the art. Athletic facilities include a swimming pool, basketball and volleyball courts, a fitness center, squash and tennis courts and a football stadium.
The safety and health of students at Summer at King's Academy are paramount concerns. The King's Academy campus is surrounded by a monitored wall, accessible only through a gate staffed around the clock by security personnel. Our fully equipped Health Center is also staffed by a medical team 24 hours a day to provide basic medical services. Local hospitals are nearby should emergency care be necessary.
