Our Program

Kingdom Life Academy is a privately funded, project-based learning, urban Christian school. The students we are targeting are ages 11-17, are failing to thrive in the traditional educational model, come from the urban/inner city areas of Tyler, and have challenging family situations.

The goal of KLA is to educate and equip our students through discipleship in Christian values and morals, and life skills training through hands-on learning. Our program also includes opportunities for the students to earn various certifications that they will need in the workforce.

Our classes are from 7am-4pm, Monday through Friday, with exceptions made for off-site learning venues and tours. There are separate classrooms for middle school and high school students that are used throughout the week for instruction and hands-on learning. Students are also placed in creative settings, such as the kitchen, where they plan for and prepare all of their own meals. There’s also a wood working/carpentry shop, a community garden, and more!

Our Mission

The Mission of Kingdom Life Academy is to Educate, Equip, and Empower students through Christ-centered, problem-based, real-world learning experiences so that students will:

  • Humbly influence and serve others through Christ.
  • Acquire valuable life knowledge and skills that enable them to break destructive cycles.
  • Concurrently graduate Kingdom Life Academy and complete one of Tyler Junior College’s certificate programs, a trade apprenticeship, or enter the military.
