Continuing a rich history that began in 1938, The King’s College reopened its doors in 1999 with a new vision and purpose. Since that time, the College has grown successfully from 17 to 465 students, established a compelling and rigorous curriculum, and recruited a group of world-renowned faculty – all in a mere thirteen years.
We exist to influence the world’s strategic institutions by graduating ambitious students who command the important intellectual traditions required to think lucidly about the social, political, and spiritual issues that confront them today. Our faculty educates academically astute students to provoke change in our society and throughout the world.
Toward that end, student government – The King’s Council – puts student’s ability to think critically, speak persuasively, and write well to the test. Once a year the Council facilitates a speech competition in which an elected member from each class writes a speech about the vision of the College and delivers it to the student body. The winner is selected by a panel of judges who take both content and delivery into consideration.
To get an idea of how students think about The King’s College vision, follow the links below to read all four speeches. The speech delivered by Derek Reed, Senior from the House of Reagan, won first place.

Philosophy and Photography: An Artist's Education at King's
King’s student Jesse Kruger (’15) combines the knowledge he’s gathered at King’s with New York City in order to pursue his love of photography.
Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, Kruger never expected to end up in New York.
“Looking back, I didn’t even want to go to college,” Kruger said. “There’s no point in going to school to study photography.”
But Kruger realized that a degree is important, not necessarily for his craft, but for his mind.
Eventually, he chose King’s because he likes “the mission and the idea of training your mind as well as the promise that you will be a better person no matter what field you go into.”

Below please find a list of ways for parents to be praying for The King's College in the next month.
For the Administration:
Please be in prayer for the Administration of the College as they try to navigate the difficult decision-making that has to take place this semester. From the Provost search to dealing with logistical challenges, the Executive Team and the Board of Trustees will be relying on prayer and God's wisdom to bring the College forward.
For the Faculty:
Please pray that God would give the faculty at The King's College the necessary energy to continue inspiring students to pursue and find truth. Also, pray that God would guide the faculty as they engage in public debates on important modern issues. Pray that they would speak the truth with grace and persuasion.
For the Students:
Now halfway through the Spring semester, many students are in the "daily grind" mode, where courses are making high demands on time, and mental and emotional energy. Please pray that our students would continue to reach out to one another, and their local churches, for emotional and spiritual support. For students who have yet to commit to regular church attendance, please pray that God would use others to reach out to those students and encourage regular participation in Christian community.
