Past, Present, and Future
Kings Christian School was organized and incorporated as a private non-profit organization in 1977 to meet a strongly perceived need for quality Christian K-12 education in a traditional setting. The original founders of Kings Christian School were four in number -- all members of the same church in Lemoore. These four became the original Board of Directors around which other interested persons from the community gathered. Two full years were spent in prayer, philosophy and policy development, and selection of curriculum. Classes began in the fall of 1979 in a four-classroom and administrative unit built on a sixteen-acre parcel of land. Concerned individuals from the area donated funds for the land and buildings. Furnishings were provided through a grant from the Stamps Foundation. One hundred fifteen students enrolled for the 1979-80 school year in grades K-8. In 1983-84, grades 9-12 were added. Students from around Kings County and portions of Fresno County attended the school. By 1985 there were 15 classrooms on the KCS campus. The assembly/ music room was built next in 1993, which was also used as the chapel until the gym was finished. In 1996, KCS received its initial accreditation.
