Read and follow the STEPS TO APPLY.

is yearly testing a requirement

Yes. Participation in standardized testing is required at The King's Academy every year for all grades except Kindergarten.  The Pre-Act is required for 9th and 10th grades. Either the ACT or SAT is required for 11th and 12th grades. 

do you take walk-in appointments

No. The Homeschool Coordinator is not available on campus during school hours, and meetings will be scheduled there after 3:30PM.  TKA has a very active campus, and we ask that you please do not expect the day school counselors, administrators or their assistants to answer homeschool-related questions. Please contact the Homeschool Coordinator by email with any questions that arise.

do you provide parents with a teacher id card?

Yes. They are distributed to new families at registration meetings and mailed to re-enrolling families in August. These cards can be very useful for museum visits or when purchasing school supplies. Many locations give a teacher/student discount with proof of being a homeschool family.

what curriculum can i use?

Parents are free to use the curriculum they feel is best suited to their student's interests, abilities, and learning style. This is a list of curriculum frequently used by students within this umbrella:
