Bargain Basement Tuition: Only $500 annual tuition. Lowest online. Our goal is to compete on price with the so-called “free” government schools. Now every family can afford a top-tier, classical Christian education. Whoever said that high quality and low price don’t mix hadn’t heard about King’s Way.

Classical Approach: The classical core of subjects was purged from the public school curriculum over 100 years ago by John Dewey. Now they’re back. These subjects are the time-tested essentials for teaching young people the lost tools of learning: critical thinking and communication skills. They include Latin, logic, rhetoric and debate.

Biblical Worldview: At King’s Way, worldview training is more than an obligatory cliché.. It starts with a Biblical evaluation of the classics, replacing the "classical synthesis" that has plagued the church for two millennia. Several worldview lab courses focus specifically on evaluating alternative worldviews in light of the Bible (Islam, humanism, Communism, etc). Teachers strive to integrate the Bible into every subject.

Biblical Studies: Six courses in Bible survey and theology complement and balance our six courses in the classical literature. Study of the Great Book and the Great Books produce graduates with a world-conquering faith. Biblical studies alternate with, and complement classical studies

Great Man Approach: Representative figures and their "schools of thought" are studied in history, economics, art, music, etc. -- the so-called "Great Man" approach to historical studies. This approach brings history to life and makes it one of the favorite courses of study at King’s Way.

Integrated Instruction: Senior level practicum/seminar integrates great books study program and ushers student into "real world" with live debates and community projects. The popular Time Machine accessed off our home page helps students integrate their studies. Each student develops an integrated Biblical worldview, beyond just mastering a group of isolated subjects.

Live Instruction: Interaction with real teachers is non-negotiable in the classical approach to Christian education. Students learn best in the context of dialectic exchange of ideas with their instructor and with their fellow students. The self-instruction approach of many of our competitors is good, but the dynamic classroom is better.

Dual Credit: In-depth transcripting and testing option for students aiming for top-tier colleges. Better yet, is our dual credit program for the Biblical Concourse and other select Christian colleges. This is the Biblical alternative to the decadent and outrageously expensive American college system.

Biblical Accreditation: Even with the best of intentions, the world’s system of institutional accreditation leads inexorably to destruction of quality in education. This is documented in numerous studies and real life examples, such as the deterioration of the formerly Christian Ivy-League colleges. Biblical accreditation of education is local and cannot be divorced from the church.

Try, Then Buy: Nominally priced introductory courses permit you to sample the program without significant financial risk. 22 self-taught, self-graded, mostly on-line courses provide the rudiments of a classical, Christian education, within the price range of virtually every family. Only $25 per individual course.

Compare the Savings

King’s Way Classical Academy is committed to providing the finest instruction available anywhere—in an existing school, a private school, or on the web—at the lowest cost to our students. Our "$1,000 Diploma" Program is impossible to beat, but even our individual course prices are the lowest available. The $1,000 tuition fee covers instructor salaries and basic operational expenses of the school. How are we able to accomplish this?

  • As an internet-based portable schoolhouse, we have no mortgage or overhead
  • Acting as our own book publishers and curriculum developers, we further reduce operational costs. This allows us to offer world-class, Ivy League preparatory courses for a fraction of the price.
  • We also have the benefit of mobility—for parents whose career involves frequent travel, or for parents looking for an alternative to the public school "battle zone", King’s Way Academy can go with you, anywhere, anytime.
  • Over 3 in every 10 of the classes at King's Way Classical Academy are priced at a nominal $25, which can dramatically reduce the overall cost of your education. In effect, every student goes to school "on scholarship."
  • In comparing the costs of King's Way Classical Academy with other Christian on-line schools it is important to remember that there really is no comparison. That is because King's Way Classical Academy is the world's first 100% web-based Classical Christian Academy. Thus, we are dealing with the proverbial "apples & oranges".
  • Although tuition fees at other online schools are often in flux, you will find that in general our cost per term averaged over the entire six years is about $559 per term. This compares to an average of at least $900 per term for other online Christian schools.

Resource Accelerator Model For School Partners

Answer these questions after watching the short video:

TWO STEPS TO DETERMINE ELIGIBILITY OF YOUR SCHOOL

FOR BENEFITS OF ONLINE PARTNERSHIP


1) Complete Intake Survey: Thinking of your parents, staff, and board as a community, please rate each of the following on a 10-point scale:

Techno-phobic 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Techno-savvy
Resist new ideas 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Open to new ideas
Happy with status quo 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Strive for improvement
Small class size only 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Larger class size acceptable
Self-contained 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Willing to outsource
Lecture-oriented 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Dialectic-oriented
Teach subjects 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Teach Tools of Learning
Low parental support 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Make disciples
Prefer Solo teaching 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Prefer team teaching




Ideally several key personnel will complete the survey independently so that your scores may be averaged. If your aggregate average is 7.0 or above you are probably a good match for the online partnership. There is a strong likelihood that you would be able to realize the potential for increased enrollment, reduced tuition, and higher teacher salaries that are likely to accrue from participation in the program.

2) Set up Intake Interview: The second step is a personal interview with King's Way leadership for a preliminary assessment of eligibility: 971-219-1733..

What others are saying

"Nobody else summarizes the Biblical perspective on the classics like Keys to the Classics -- it is short and right to the point. It's nice to know that you've picked out what is important so I don't have to read so much. The analysis is very good with the focus on what the Bible says about the function of the state." Adelaide Smith, Homeschool Grandmother.



"What an exciting project! We are grateful for all your work and input. This looks so good! This is what we have been praying for for these grades. I would like to know how I can help you develop this project."
Christine Field, Homeschool mom, Author of homeschooling books, and former attorney.



Woods has done us all a great service by writing this balanced, comprehensive, easy-to-understand and intensely practical handbook to the subject of civil government from a Christian perspective. Marked by biblical fidelity, political sagacity and cultural immediacy. [referring to our online American Government/History text: "Discipling the Nations"].
George Grant, Christian Author, Kings Meadow Study Center.



Woods does a fine job of introducing the modern Christian reader to some of the complex issues which lead to our current political and cultural impasse. Contrary to the received opinion, our problem did not begin in the sixties, unless you mean the 1760s. Woods has written a very fine introduction to biblical thinking on constitutional issues. [Referring to our online American Government/History text: "Discipling the Nations"] Judging from Woods' past work, I look forward to watching the growth of ClassicalFree Academy.
Douglas Wilson, Author of "Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning" and Founder of the Association of Classical and Christian Schools (ACCS).



Every Christian parent should examine this new offering. The opportunities for a solid grounding in the Christian Worldview are unlimited. Theologically, ClassicalFree Academy is solidly and uncompromisingly grounded in the historic Reformation, with no trace of the deadly Enlightenment and egalitarian influences which affect so many otherwise excellent offerings.
Raymond Joseph, Pastor (RPC)



Nothing-- may I say that again?-- nothing is more important in the battle for our covenant future than faithful covenant education. And no recent tool has held more potential than the Internet to help an increasingly scattered people of God fulfill their education mandate. The potential of Classical Free Virtual Academy is enormous. Get on board. Hold the feet of the providers to the fire, pressuring them to stay on track, to keep offering the best, and to charge (whatever) as needed. The important thing is that we fulfill the mandate to educate our children in Christ. What a powerful means this could be with your involvement.
Steve Schlissel (Pastor/overseer of Urban Nations)



Every once in a while, someone provides a service to the Christian community which, if utilized, promises to be one of those few invaluable experiences that help determine the character of our lives. The ClassicalFree Virtual Academy is such a service for parents who understand the incredible significance of a child's education. The goal of the Academy is an ambitious one, indeed, and its success depends primarily upon discerning parents who recognize a golden opportunity. The ClassicalFree Virtual Academy is an excellent combination of technology and a proven educational philosophy.
Jim Bordwine, Th.D., Pastor (PCA)



Thank God ClassicalFree Virtual Academy has given the church a solid Christian alternative to the secular public education curriculum. Students completing this curriculum will run circles around their secular peers as well as outperform many public education teachers. This curriculum does a great job of exceeding state teaching standards while being built on a solid biblical foundation.
Hector Falcon, Christian High School Teacher

Wendy Wright, College student and Mother.

John Pershe, Homeschool father.

I have been trying for years to figure out a way to incorporate them into my homeschooling efforts without success. I knew I would need to interpret all that literature from a biblical worldview and have never felt secure that I could do so. What a joy to discover your courses."
Kathleen A. Dillie, Homeschool Mother



"A wealth of information in the free trial courses. I'm glad someone is dealing with this perspective on the Constituton."

David Schildkraut



"My husband and I homeschool our children and a very Godly older gentleman who lives with us is teaching our two oldest girls history using your book, "Discipling the Nations". He loves it. He has invested a lot of time preparing for each class. He has them read other sources like "The Law" by Frederik Bastiat and made them write summaries of each chapter. My husband oversees them and all of them are excited and impressed with what they are being presented. Thank you for your work in this area. I pray many parents will have their eyes opened and run from the government schools. What a joy it is to teach my children the truth."
Betsy Boyce, Home School Mother
