Student Leadership

The King’s College academic program is crafted to prepare students for leadership in strategic national institutions — government, commerce, law, the media, civil society, education, the arts and the church. It is classical in approach, meaning that we want students to understand the great ideas that have shaped human history. 

Toward that end, we introduce students to ideas that are true for all times and all people , while striving to develop the wisdom and skill to apply our knowledge in everyday situations. In this way, students begin to understand universal principles and develop the prudence to apply these ideas congruently and consistently to specific situations. In short, we are developing potential statesmen.

Every student at The King’s College takes a set of courses grounded in politics, philosophy, and economics – those areas of study that have the most influence in shaping society. 

Knowledge is not learned in a vacuum, though, so Student Development serves the vision of the College in three main ways. First, we create opportunities for students to test their knowledge by providing them opportunities to lead. Second, we provide skills training that coincides with the leadership challenges faced by student leaders. Third, we encourage the transference of this knowledge to the student body. 

This experiential learning strategy – primarily implemented through The King’s Council and the House System, allows for the integration of theory and practice to equip students to shape the College today and society tomorrow.
