W. Wyman King Academy opened its doors for the first time in 1972. Many parents, grandparents, and other concerned individuals wanted to create a school in this area that would offer the best possible environment for their children to be educated. They held to the belief that learning takes place best in a Christian environment where dedicated teachers maintain discipline in their classrooms while treating children with respect and demanding respect in return. Over the years, this has remained the philosophy and purpose of King Academy.
Students from 4 year old kindergarten through 12th grade attend King Academy in a traditional classroom setting. Kindergarten through 5th grade are taught in self-contained classrooms for each grade. The primary emphasis is on reading, writing, math, and language skills along with science, social studies, music, and physical education. Elementary students also have Art, Bible, Music, Library, PE and Computer once a week. Grades 6, 7, and 8 are grouped together in a middle school setting with different teachers in language, reading, math, science, social studies, and physical education. Our high school students have the option of choosing a General Studies diploma or a College Preparatory diploma.
