Through student book fees paid at the beginning of each school year, The King's Academy provides all necessary textbooks and a student planner. Whenever possible, textbooks have been selected for their biblical foundation.
The use of Scripture in the classroom is a fundamental, integral part of the education process at The King's Academy. For this reason The King's Academy also recognizes the importance of selecting a version that has those qualities which enhance the education process.
There are several Bible translations which are widely accepted by conservative, evangelical scholars as quality works for study. Each translation has strengths and weaknesses. However, to avoid confusion in the classroom, it is necessary to select a translation for school wide use.
We recognize The New International Version as the translation normally used in the classroom for study, quotation and memorization. This decision was made for several reasons:
The strengths of the NIV may be viewed by some as a weakness and another translation preferred. In those cases the parents may request in writing an exception for use of another translation by their child for memorization.
