King's Christian School's mission is to encourage students to accept Christ as personal Savior and to follow Him as Lord; to inspire students to achieve their full academic, social, physical, and spiritual potential; and to challenge students to exercise their skills and knowledge to positively impact the world.
King’s Christian School (KCS), a ministry of Southwest Community Church, is a private, non-denominational school which provides a well-rounded, Christ-centered education for students from pre-school through 8th grade.
Faculty members, certified by FACCS, are well equipped to motivate students toward success. The average years of experience for KCS teachers is 17. With a relatively low student-teacher ratio, each student is given personal attention. Strong communication between the home and the school plays a vital role in the healthy atmosphere which permeates the school.
The small family atmosphere at KCS creates in the children a feeling of security. They thrive on the individual attention given them. Academic skills are strengthened in such an environment, and after-school help classes are offered to those who need extra reinforcement. Most of our graduating eighth graders transfer to the high school of their first choice.
Standardized testing, administered during the spring to the kindergarten five through eighth grade classes, generally yields scores above the national norm in every subject.
In a school which is small in size but big in heart, opportunities for achievement and enrichment are abundant. Students are encouraged to use their talents and pursue their interests in many venues such as drama, speech, music, guitar, creative writing, computer technology, desktop publishing, audiovisual, and sports.
Our sports teams have met with great success in their endeavors. For many years KCS has received top honors in both drama and creative writing in the FACCS Creative Writing and Junior Fine Arts Festivals.
KCS reaches out to the community as it sponsors projects for the Miami Rescue Mission, orphanages, and needy schools. Patriotic and spiritual programs are performed at hospitals, convalescent homes, shopping malls, and churches.
The school day for pre-schoolers and kindergarteners is from 8:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Students in grades 1st-8th are in class from 8:15 a.m. to 3:05 p.m.
Extended school care is available for pre-school and kindergarten children from 12:15 p.m. to 3:05 p.m. In addition, elementary and middle school students may be in attendance from 3:15 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Please see the tuition and fees schedule for additional information.
Students may purchade a nutritious hot lunch or side order daily, or may bring a lunch from home. A complete menu is published monthly.
In God’s strength, the entire family of King’s Christian School will receive ROYAL treatment from the King of Kings and, having received Jesus Christ as personal Savior, will continue to experience joy and fulfillment throughout all eternity. “He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:11, 12).
It is the sincere prayer of the entire staff that our children grow into strong, God-honoring young men and women as Christ makes a difference in their lives. They are a living testimony that "blessed are the people whose God is the Lord" (Ps. 114:15).
