The King’s Academy has occupied the former Sunnyvale High School campus since 1993. TKA leases the campus from Fremont Union High School District (FUHSD). With a long-term lease agreement and the support of the FUHSD and City of Sunnyvale, The King’s Academy has made many improvements to the property over the years, including remodeling the gym, renovating the Quad, installing a new athletic field and all-weather track with lights, and numerous upgrades to all the educational facilities.
Over the last 26 years, The King’s Academy has grown to over 950 students. Although a relatively young school, we are thankful for the excellence we have achieved and for which we continue to strive. The King’s Academy accomplishes this through a challenging college preparatory program, a visual and performing arts department well known throughout the Bay Area, competitive California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) athletics with a myriad of league and division titles, and a spiritual life component which fosters a mentor relationship between teacher and student. The King’s Academy is fully accredited by ACSI and WASC and offers a variety of AP and Honors Courses, educational trips, and service opportunities to other states and countries. Class sizes remain small, averaging 24 students.
The distinguishing feature of The King’s Academy is, and always has been, its commitment to a different standard. The King’s Academy is striving to achieve something in the area of character development with its students by providing opportunity for relationships with mature Christian men and women. The expectation is that teachers and staff will seek out students, both inside and outside the classroom, and that students will see Jesus in the lives of those around them. This relational ministry will attract kids to Christ.
The overarching purpose and goal of The King’s Academy is “to transform lives through Christ-centered education.” This concept still fuels all that occurs at The King’s Academy. All those employed or involved in leadership believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, to whom this school is dedicated, would expect nothing less than the full energy of all involved working towards the common goal.
