Georgia Certificate of Merit Scholars
Each year the University of Georgia, in conjunction with the State Department of Education, recognize Georgia Certificate of Merit Scholars across the state of Georgia in recognition of outstanding scholastic achievement throughout the first three years of high school. To qualify for this prestigious award, students must rank in the top five percent of their junior class and be enrolled in college preparatory curriculum. This year, we are proud to announce the following recipients of this honor at our school: Ashton Allen, Noah Boerner, Mia Cox, and Rosie Sycks. Congratulations!
Knights Sweep GICAA Div II-AA Spring 2016 Championships
The King's Academy experienced an unusually blessed spring with the Georgia Independent Christian Athletics Association! Our Girls Tennis, Boys Tennis, Girls Soccer, Boys Soccer, Golf, Softball and Baseball high school teams each won their State Championship in Division II-AA. We are thankful for our hardworking athletes and coaches, as well as our partnership with a Christ-honoring organization like the GICAA.

We are pleased to announce that one of our alumni from the Class of 2015, Allie Ibarra, was recently selected as a member of the Dean William Tate Honor Society at the University of Georgia. This recognition is stated to be the most prestigious honor a freshman may receive at UGA. The Tate Society annually recognizes only twelve men and twelve women of the first year class. Selection is based upon academic achievement and extracurricular involvement (scholarship, leadership, and service). We are proud that one of our own was selected for this honor!
