 Proverbs 22:6 says "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." 

  It is upon this premise that Kingsway Academy School stands. Understanding that children ought to be trained in the way they should go, Christian education allows the molding of a child's mind, consequently affecting the way they think. Kingsway Academy is seeking to enroll families who are interested in seeing their children grow in a relationship with Christ and develop the life skills necessary toward fulfilling their God-given purpose in the world. We encourage you along with your child (children), to take note of our educational programs, extra-curricular activities and spirited school community.

As a fully comprehensive school, operating under the auspices of The Bahamas Conference of the Methodist Church, our interests lie not only in academic excellence but also in raising well-rounded, courteous, spiritually grounded global citizens.
