Your Child’s Journey Begins Here
we hope for every child who attends King’s Way to:
DISCOVER GOD’S LOVE
In addition to academic excellence, our students are taught about God’s love for us and our responsibility to love Him and others—the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. The way that we care for and respect one another creates a caring and nurturing environment where we can focus on learning, without having to constantly filter out many of the social/emotional challenges that other students face in most schools today.
DISCERN GOD’S TRUTH
King’s Way is committed to developing students with an ability to discern God’s truth. In a culture bombarding our children with messages competing for their attention and allegiance, a hallmark of a King’s Way student is one who can sift the truth from deception and light from the dark.
DREAM GOD’S CALL
King’s Way is a safe and encouraging place where children can dream about their future. Whether it be through academics, a trade, the military or the mission field, King’s Way wants students to be equipped to serve with excellence. As students acquire knowledge, skills, and abilities, they are able to joyfully envision how God could use them to serve the common good.
DO GOD’S WILL
Once our students have discovered where they want to go and the positive impact they want to have in this life, we want King’s Way students who are confident of their significance and courageous in their pursuit of whatever the Lord calls them to do and be. This confidence comes through daily interaction with teachers and staff who daily mentor their students in what it means to know and serve God. On a campus that feels like family, our love for one another helps compel us to engage with the world in ways that honor and glorify the Lord.
Our goal is to create life-long learners who are passionate about Christ. We partner with our families in providing experiences and an education that lead to life change in each of our students. We believe King’s Way is more than just a school; we are a family and a community. At King’s Way our students’ education goes beyond the core classes; each student has the opportunity to explore creative opportunities like band, choir, art, secondary language classes, and physical education.
Elementary, Middle, and High School also provide extracurricular activities, clubs and athletics that help our students attain the values, knowledge, and skills to become independent and self-reliant learners.
King’s Way Christian Schools is fully accredited by Washington State’s Association of Educational Service Districts (AESD), and meets all requirements for the State of Washington. King’s Way is also a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
Leadership Begins at The Top
Superintendent Dr. Tindol has his Doctorate in Education and 65% of our teachers have their Master’s degrees. Dr. Tindol just finished a Certification in Advanced Educational Leadership (CAEL) at Harvard University, and our Middle School Principal, Daven Harmeling, just completed his Masters in Teaching from WSU. Professional development opportunities are provided and required of all King’s Way teachers.

Bully-Prevention is the Key along with Family participation
Studies tell us that when children witness bullying (this includes nearly all children ages twelve and older) and do not respond in a prosocial way, their capacity for courage, sympathy, and related virtues actually decreases. But the opposite is also true. When children respond to bullying in a strong and non-violent manner, their capacity for courage, sympathy, and related virtues increases then and into the future.
We’ve partnered with The Protectors, an internationally recognized organization founded by Paul Coughlin, to help our school do more to recognize and reduce bullying. Coughlin began by addressing students, staff, faculty, and parents to bring his wisdom, insights, and experience to our community. By helping these various groups in knowing how to handle adolescent behavior in a biblical manner, we believe this partnership will help our students obtain courage, faith, and leadership skills for life. The end goal is to foster courage and leadership in our students to help create a beautiful community at King’s Way.

We are King’s Way Christian Schools
We believe that every child is created with purpose and that we partner with parents to help students discover and fulfill that purpose through identifying and cultivating their unique talents, gifts, skills, and abilities.
We believe that school should be a caring and safe community where students are nurtured intellectually, emotionally, socially, and spiritually in pursuit of their God-given potential.
We believe in working toward clearly articulated student outcomes that will prepare students to enter the world and job market able to be confident, innovative, collaborative, and critical thinkers.
We believe in integrating a Biblical worldview into every aspect of the student experience so that students can discern the world through the lens of Scripture.
We believe in equipping students to grow in their relationship with Christ so that they can ultimately discover and fulfill God’s call on their lives.
We believe in helping students become relationally mature and self-aware, able to interact with others respectfully and effectively in the classroom, on the playground, or on the playing field.
We believe in developing a stewardship ethic so that students care deeply about the holistic health of themselves, others, and the world in which we live.
