The King’s College is a Christian liberal arts college in New York City’s Financial District. King’s seeks to educate the next generation of leaders.
The King’s College is a Christian liberal arts college in New York City’s Financial District founded in 1938. We choose to engage our culture at its heart, providing students with opportunities they won’t find elsewhere. The College’s Core Curriculum gives students a robust intellectual foundation for principled leadership throughout society. Under the mentorship of our distinguished faculty, students learn to seamlessly integrate their faith and morality into their lives and careers. We are not a college for the faint of heart—we call our students to be good, brave, and ready.
Through its commitment to the truths of Christianity and a biblical worldview, The King’s College seeks to transform society by preparing students for careers in which they help to shape and eventually to lead strategic public and private institutions, and by supporting faculty members as they directly engage culture through writing and speaking publicly on critical issues.
We’re dedicated to providing students an unparalleled education rooted in Christian thought and the Western tradition, right from the capital of planet Earth—New York City.
Faculty and staff are confessing Christians and seek Christ’s preeminence in all things, giving students a model of full-bodied Christian faithfulness.
Students prepare for influence with a challenging curriculum centered on Politics, Philosophy, and Economics in light of a Judeo-Christian worldview.
Student organizations, faculty and staff mentors, and membership in the House System embolden and encourage students.
Our location in the heart of New York City positions students, alumni, and faculty to shape culture for good.
