King’s Junior High

A Place to Grow


King’s Junior High is a place where students grow. Rigorous academics, leadership training, and sportsmanship all create a structured, nurturing community where students mature beyond the elementary years and prepare for high school.

Guidance from teachers is critical at this stage of a student’s life. Students and alumni point to our teachers as the reason for King’s success. Our teachers have proven to be exemplary role models and accredited educators who have a passion for Christian education. The teaching staff follows King’s high-quality academic curriculum and effectively bridges the gap between elementary and high school academics.

An important aspect of King’s Junior High is The Armor. The Armor is a way of life at King’s Jr. High—a way of living, leading, and serving in our school community. Through small mentor groups, volunteer opportunities, and leadership training, The Armor leads students towards the words in Ephesians 6 to “put on the armor of God” in order to grow, serve, and lead abundantly.

Sports programs at King’s Junior High inspire interested students to try new activities, open the door to work towards high athletic performance and allow students to develop sportsmanship, lasting friendships and fond memories.

The junior high years can be some of the toughest years children face. At King’s, we do everything possible to ensure each child is cared for and given the opportunity to grow emotionally and spiritually, spend valuable time with friends, and succeed academically.

I consider it a great privilege to partner with King’s students, teachers and parents in the awesome task of educating, guiding and nurturing students as they bridge the gap between elementary school and high school. These “middle years” are truly unique, and it brings me great joy to watch the students discover their potential.

At KJH, we understand how important it is for young adolescents to be known and understood, and we make it a priority to encourage and support them in all aspects of their lives. Whether in class, on the athletic field, in chapel or in mentor groups, we strive to know our students and to guide them in their journey.

King’s parents are a wonderfully supportive group of people. They take a keen interest in the success and development of their children, and that–by far–plays the most significant role in their students’ success. The parent-school partnership is one of the greatest assets of the King’s community.

The faculty and staff at the Jr. High have over 200 collective years of experience working with young adolescents. They have committed their lives to guiding junior high students toward academic and spiritual growth. They are committed Christians who serve God by serving our students, and supporting their efforts is the single greatest facet of my job.

These are unique (and yes, challenging!) years! King’s Junior High students have boundless energy and unlimited potential, and I consider it a blessing and a privilege to be a part of their lives.
