Lead with the heart of a servant, Serve with the heart of The King

Our Pillars

KCA Ad 027.jpg


Our entire staff works toward creating an atmosphere for students and families to encounter the fullness and love of God. We believe that the questions of today will find answers through student-leaders who have discovered living life through the love of God. 


We equip our students to become critical thinkers, self-motivated learners, servant leaders and solution innovators. We believe they can surpass expectations and become better leaders when they are equipped with a mindset that there are no limits to what they can do.


We want our students to excel in all areas of life by embracing their God-given identity. When our students learn to live from that position and understanding, they are inspired to excel in their academics, leadership and service. 


STUDENT CULTURE - At KCA, we are a body of teachers, students and families who lead with the hearts of servants and serve with the heart of The King.  We love God, families and kids completely.  In order to see, develop and cultivate the best within our students, as well as ourselves, we must lead, love and live within community.  In their natural habitat, lions live in communities or families called PRIDES.  At KCA, all of us thrive from healthy, God-centered relationships with each other. We recognize our greatest calling is to daily love God and daily love the people around us. At KCA, we excel in education because we are raising leaders within PRIDES.

KCA Lion students will embody: 


Peace is one of the names of Jesus and a fruit of His Spirit. KCA students are taught to live their lives operating from His peace. While some leaders are thermometers and simply read the temperature of a room, our students act as the thermostats to the environments around them  and become atmosphere changers. 

Ephesians 2:14
"For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility." 


Our students see problems and understand they are God’s solution. They are empowered to represent God and His Kingdom in all they do.

Isaiah 61:1 and 2
"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners.”


In leadership, everything rises and falls on integrity.  We teach our students to do the right thing no matter what.  We are raising up leaders who own up to their mistakes, while understanding these mistakes don’t define them. 

 I Chronicles 29:17
"I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity."


Determination is the largest factor that dictates success from failure.  KCA students will be resilient and understand that grit will allow them to live from a place of faith and not fear.  Students with determination understand that they are always growing, moving forward as a work in progress. 

Proverbs 28:1
“But the righteous are as bold as a lion.” 


Empathy is the ability to relate, connect and have compassion for others.  Our students grow to understand that God wants to use them as the greatest example of His love to others.  Emotional and relational intelligences are the most important qualities today’s generation of leaders can possess.   

Matthew 7:12
"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.”


The finished and saving work that Jesus did on the cross enables us to understand and apply grace and hope.  As we all live from that place, we are safe and secure in our relationship with Him and each other.

Job 11:18
"You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety."

Statement of Faith

What We Believe AT kingsway christian academy

At KCA, we value every Christian denomination as having a unique and important contribution to the Body of Christ. As a result, our faculty and student population comes from an interdenominational representation of churches in the Douglas County community. 

Statement of Faith

Our common denominator is the centrality of the cross and the work of Jesus as being the only way to a relationship with God; the Bible as being our foundation for all of life; and our mandate to love one another in how we live and interact. We exist in support of the local churches of Douglas County, Colorado, to partner with parents and provide a Christ-centered education that:

1.       Gives each student an opportunity to grow in their knowledge of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and to encounter all of who He is. (Romans 10:9-10)

2.       Challenges them to excel academically (Proverbs 1:7)

3.       Empowers them to know and love whom God has created them to be (Psalm 139:13,14; Ephesians 2:10)

4.       Provides curricula that disciple them to increase in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man (Luke 2:52)

We’re honored to represent a tapestry of many different threads that present a cohesive picture of what it means to grow in our love for God and one another.

KCA believes

In the Holy Bible as the inspired, infallible Word of God (II Timothy 3:15-17)

In one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4, Matt. 28:19, Mark12:29)

That God created the heavens and the earth, and that man was created by God in His Own image but, by Adam’s sin, became separated from God and is by nature sinful and guilty before God and unable to remedy his lost condition by himself (Gen. 1, Rom. 3:23 and 5:12-18) In Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin (Luke 1:26-35)

That Jesus Christ, after His sacrificial death and His resurrection, ascended to heaven and is in the position of all honor and power at God’s right hand (Mark16:19, I Peter 3:22)

That the salvation of sinful man is a free gift of God’s grace apart from works, based solely upon Christ’s atoning death, effected by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of men, and received by faith

In Christ’s finished work on the cross (John 3:5, Eph. 2:8-9, Titus 3:3-7)

We believe that as followers of Jesus Christ we are called to serve God through serving others. We believe that whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, (Matt. 20:26) and that we should model our lives after the life of Christ, in that the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve (Matt. 20:28).

In divine healing through the redemptive work of Christ (I Peter 2:24, Matt. 8:16-17, James 5:13-15)

In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live holy and minister supernaturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4 is poured out on believers that they might have power to be witnesses.

In the fellowship together with other believers as the body of Christ, and that God has given leadership and supernatural gifts to the church (I Cor. 12:27-28, Hebrews 10:24-25)

In the second coming of Jesus Christ (Acts 24:15, Luke 14:14) and

In the ever-increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious visible return of our Lord Jesus Christ for His overcoming bride–His church. Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting death.

A Letter from Torrence Jackson

KingsWay Academy Director


Hello Students and Families,

At KingsWay Christian Academy, our goal is to equip bold, innovative, and loving young leaders by providing education that is interdisciplinary, rigorous, and Christ-centered.  Our mission clearly states, “KingsWay Christian Academy exists to prepare students for life by partnering with families, churches and cities to provide a Christ-centered education.  The KingsWay mission is to transform lives by creating an academic environment that fosters servant leaders who are empowered to live out their God given destiny." 

The concept of partnership is at the center of the KingsWay Christian Academy heart.  Our goal and absolute desire is to partner with families and students to see transformation that lasts for all of eternity.  Transformed lives within families make a real difference in homes, neighborhoods, cities, and regions.  

Within our vision, we identify three pillars of focus: Encounter - Equip - Excel.  At KCA, we understand that God is the author and creator of all things.  It all begins and ends with Him!  

In order for our students to live out of true identity, they must encounter the love of Jesus Christ.  I am privileged to work with an amazing staff that embodies that love every day and shares it with students and families.  We believe that the questions of today will find answers in student leaders who discover and live life through that love of God.  Only because of this authentic encounter with our creator can our students truly understand empathy and begin to carry the peace of God wherever they go!   

Equipping students of today requires having a personal and dynamic relationship with students and families.  Students who are led by authentic teachers whom they trust, will always achieve more than they ever thought possible.  KCA teachers live out the love of the Father inside of their classrooms and within daily instruction thus bringing curriculum to life. I am proud that our staff is comprised of life-long learners who are incredibly passionate for their subject areas and desire restoration in all things. Proverbs 22:6 tells us to, “Train up a child in the way that he should go and he will not depart from it.”  Our heart is to equip each child with differentiated instruction and specific tools needed to excel as God intended.  

At KCA, our desire is for students to excel at all that they do, so that God will get the glory.  In order to do this, we teach our students that God is in the center of all things and all truth.  We provide an atmosphere for students to encounter these values and obtain knowledge through our carefully designed program of curriculum, discipleship, and community service.  As we all know, making mistakes along the way, understanding these errors, and not allowing such mistakes to define us builds character.  We believe that this is a generation of students who will excel at doing the right thing no matter what, therefore becoming individuals of integrity!      

Our goal is to develop thriving servant leaders through an approach that focuses on the whole child.  This means that we do not see the pursuits of character, intellect, creative expression, and physical wellness as being unrelated factors in reaching children.  At KCA, we recognize that all of these qualities work together in a significant and holistic way.  God has equipped all of our students with unique gifts and abilities.  We encourage students by nurturing these attributes while focusing on determination, optimism, and grit.  We believe that students with a growth mindset are not afraid to risk and fail because they are secure in who they are.   

We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with you and your family.  Our goal is to raise up young people whose roar becomes the sound of their culture!  We believe each of these leaders will be as bold as a lion! 

Lead with the heart of a servant.  Serve with the heart of The King!
