            Blessed to have had the opportunity.

            I was blessed with the best Teacher Preparation Program in the area. I completed my degree in 3.5 years at Kings with a dual certification in Special Education and PK-4 General Education. Kings's Teacher Prep Program is NCATE accredited and has the best professors any college could offer. Truly a blessing!!!

            Great smaller private college in a great community.

            I grew up in Kingston, right across the river from King's. My father and one of my brothers are also King's grads. It was a great area in which to grow up and a wonderful experience attending college there King's has a solid core curriculum, with the aim and effect of producing well-rounded students, able to think for themselves, with excellent critical thinking skills (not indoctrinating politically correct drones, like too many colleges seem to have as their goal). King's also gives its students a firm foundation in basic Christian ethics. No matter what field you intend to pursue, King's will do a great job helping you prepare.
