King’s Academy is the only school in the Middle East to host the prestigious i2 Camp. This US-based program offers students who will be entering grades 6, 7, 8 and 9 a series of innovative coding and programming courses. The i2 curriculum was developed through partnerships with world-class STEM organizations such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Museum of Science in Boston and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories.
New in 2023! All boarding students will be automatically enrolled in our new interstellar astronomy program.
This program offers a stellar opportunity for kids to explore their love (or discover a new passion) for outer space. They will participate in astronomical observations, learn about the Solar System and broader universe, and explore the beauty of the night sky through breathtaking stargazing activities from the Omar A. Aggad Observatory, our on-campus state-of-the-art observatory which houses one of the most powerful telescopes in the region.
There will be a special focus on introducing students to the tools of understanding, exploring and navigating the celestial sphere, including constellations, coordinates and motion. Students will be highly engaged through group activities, debates and brainstorming sessions to deepen their understanding of the origin and future of our universe, from the Big Bang theory and more.

I came back this year because i2 Camp is really fun and challenging, and you get to meet a lot of people. Your knowledge really expands. I want to come back again next year too!
