King’s Knights Armor
At King’s Schools, our mission is to inspire hearts and equip minds for God’s glory. Our commitment to this mission has led us to The Armor. God’s Word teaches us to “put on the armor of God” in order to grow, serve, and lead abundantly. Our hope is that The Armor will encourage and inspire these traits in King’s Junior High students to the glory of God.
The Armor Mission
Through The Armor, King’s Junior High Students will grow in faith, knowledge and wisdom while serving compassionately and leading courageously.
The Armor Components
Students grow through experiencing new challenges, deepening their faith, and increasing academic knowledge. Opportunities for growth include Single-Gender Classes, Mentor Groups, the 7th Grade Extreme Armor, and the 8th Grade Armor Adventure.
Single Gender Classes will be scheduled for students in both grades in core academic classes such as reading, writing, math, and science. Elective classes will be taught in a co-ed environment.
Mentor Groups pair 8-10 students with a teacher mentor throughout the school year. Mentor Groups include weekly meetings and a community service project in the spring.
The 7th Grade Extreme Armor is an overnight retreat at Island Lake Camp in Poulsbo, Washington. Students spend the 2 days with their mentor group being challenged and encouraged.
The 8th Grade Armor Adventure is a four-day adventure trip to Stonewater Ranch in Leavenworth, Washington. During this time, students will bond as a group, experience the great outdoors, study and practice specific leadership skills, set goals and push personal limits, and spend time in spiritual reflection.
Additional growing opportunities include participating in athletics, bible studies, chapel, and enrichment courses.
Students serve God by serving others in their school, churches, and in the greater community. Students will complete 20 hours of Christian service throughout the school year. Service opportunities include assisting with athletic programs, giving time to local churches, and volunteering with community organizations.
Students become leaders worth following by developing valuable leadership skills. Students will enhance their leadership skills by participating in student-led conferences, “Dressing for Success”, supporting the arts and athletics, leading Chapel worship, and exploring key leadership qualities such as courage and integrity.
