King's Academy is an independent, coeducational boarding and day high school in Madaba that provides an exceptional educational experience for outstanding young men and women from Jordan, the Middle East and around the globe. Blending an American style of education rooted in the liberal arts and sciences with Middle Eastern history, traditions, language and cultural values, King's Academy prepares students for entry into the most prestigious universities in the world. Beginning in the fall of 2016, King’s Academy will open a middle school for grades 7 and 8.

Just 30 minutes away from Amman, nestled amongst olive groves and farmland, the 575-dunum (144 acre) King’s Academy campus is a perfect blend of modern innovation and the rich traditions of the region. Designed to reflect Levantine and Islamic cultural heritage, the campus includes state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories and a 50,000-book library, a multi-faith spiritual center and courtyard, dormitories incorporating faculty family apartments, and a magnificent auditorium that serves not just the students but the community as a whole.


In a setting that is rich in history and tradition, King’s Academy is committed to providing a comprehensive college-preparatory education through a challenging curriculum in the arts and sciences; an integrated co-curricular program of athletics, activities and community service; and a nurturing residential environment. Our students will learn to be independent, creative and responsible thinkers within an ethical community that encourages young men and women of diverse backgrounds and beliefs to excel, to cherish one another and to prepare for leadership.


King’s Academy is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the Council of International Schools (CIS) and is licensed by the Jordanian Ministry of Education. King’s Academy is also a member of the Round Square organization and a founding member of the Global Online Academy (GOA).


The only coeducational residential boarding school of its kind in the region, King’s Academy is also the most diverse school in the Middle East, with students from 39 countries, and over 40 percent of the student body receiving some form of financial aid.


King’s Academy students take a remarkably ambitious course of study, including four years of both Arabic and English and two additional years of a third language (Chinese, French or Spanish). King’s is a school of engagement, teaching through discussion, debate and dialogue. In addition to courses in math, science, arts and humanities, our students take required courses in Arabic literature, history of the Middle East, world religions and Christian and Islamic theology. King’s strives to graduate students who are globally aware, inter-culturally competent and fully bilingual.


King’s Academy offers 28 Advanced Placement (AP) classes, most of which are accepted as credit in American, British and Canadian universities and colleges. Students at King’s Academy consistently score higher than the global average on AP Exams.

Unlike IB and GCSE Advanced Level courses, the AP gives students the chance to prove their in-depth knowledge across a wide array of courses: a student’s application to college might show perfect AP Exam scores in Calculus, Spanish Literature, Advanced Physics, Music Theory, Microeconomics and Computer Science, or practically any combination. The AP Exams give colleges a better sense of the developing skills and interests of students and, as many admissions officers can attest, AP scores are a virtual must for students seeking entrance to top universities around the world. For Jordanian students, AP Exams help them obtain their Tawjihi equivalency.


In the hopes of unlocking each child's creative potential and individuality, King’s Academy offers a range of courses and co-curricular activities in the arts. In addition to classes in the traditional and modern arts of dance, ceramics, mosaics, painting, photography, drawing, acting, animation and design, King’s has a youth orchestra and a rich theatrical program. King’s also offers a comprehensive and required program in public speaking. Every year each student performs a public declamation in Arabic and English during an all-school competition. Students also participate in Model United Nations (MUN), Model Congress, Debate, Toastmasters and Jordan Model Parliament.


The boarding school experience is an ideal way for students to optimize both academic learning and social development. Under the close supervision and guidance of faculty and staff, students are encouraged to challenge themselves intellectually while developing their social skills, athletic and extra-curricular interests, personal maturity and ethics. Sharing common areas in the dorms and around campus, students learn the arts of patience and compromise with their neighbors and peers. They also quickly learn the importance of trust and respect. As a result of living, eating and studying together, boarding students graduate with maturity and confidence, an understanding of others who may be different from themselves and a close bond with classmates that will endure for the rest of their lives.
