Photo of Co-Ed Boarding & Day School in Knoxville TN Residential Life:
The King's Academy maintains high expectations for the daily lives of residential students. Rooms are predominately double occupancy, with some single occupancy rooms. Living within a residence hall with numerous other students is different from what some may have experienced while living at home.

The close friendship that a person develops with a roommate can last a lifetime. One of the greatest influences on a residential student's attitude is the quality of the relationship with his or her roommate.
