In the past many students have inquired about adding a sixth elective course to their semester course load, but were unable to do so. Now through a partnership with American High School it is possible for King’s Way students to upgrade by adding an elective to their schedule. All half credit courses are just $225.00 for the semester and all full credit courses are just $400, payable to American High School.

The courses are listed below, and will give students an opportunity to take additional electives. For example, a student enrolling in the 7th grade might elect to add a Mathematics course every semester, graduating with 12 additional Mathematics courses completed. Students completing at least 8 courses in a category will be awarded a ‘minor” designation to appear on their diploma as: “With A Minor In ______”.

The intent is to add a practical and entrepreneurial dimension to the liberal arts emphasis at King’s Way Classical Academy. Students concentrating in a particular minor are also laying a foundation for transition to colleges with which King’s Way has a dual-credit arrangement, such as New Geneva Leadership Academy.

Below, you will find a list of the courses offered. If you click to the left of the course title, a description of the course will appear below. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions, or you can just click the “Enroll today” link to enroll immediately. Together, we are working to provide our students the best education and course options. We look forward to this long and prosperous partnership with King’s Way Classical Academy and American High School.

  • Stress is a fact of life, wherever you are and whatever you are doing. You cannot avoid stress, but you can learn to manage it so it doesn’t manage you. Changes in our lives—such as going to college, getting married, changing jobs, or illness—are frequent sources of stress. Keep in mind that changes that cause stress can also benefit you. Moving away from home to attend college, for example, creates personal-development opportunities—new challenges, friends, and living arrangements. That is why it’s important to know yourself and carefully consider the causes of stress. Learning to do this takes time, and although you cannot avoid stress, the good news is that you can minimize the harmful effects of stress, such as depression or hypertension. The key is to develop an awareness of how you interpret, and react to, circumstances. This awareness will help you develop coping techniques for managing stress. For example, as an Army platoon leader, managing stress will require techniques that include an awareness of yourself and your Soldiers.
