WEST PALM BEACH- The King’s Academy is pleased to announce a significant investment from The Frank DiMino Foundation that will allow for the construction of the Frank DiMino Early Childhood Center on its campus in West Palm Beach on the corner of Belvedere and Sansbury’s Road. Darren Bardell, Executive Director of the Foundation, recently presented a check to The King’s Academy which will allow for the construction to begin in the coming months. Bardell shared, “Our board members recognized from the start of our relationship with TKA that we shared a common goal: to support and develop the next generation of civic and business leaders. We are honored to have the opportunity to continue to partner with TKA through the building of the Early Childhood Center.”
The center will be an extension and foundation for the school’s JK-12th grade program. The 10,000 square foot Frank DiMino Early Childhood Center will serve nearly 200 students with an enriching and developmentally appropriate designed program and curriculum that will prepare two, three and four-year-olds for elementary school and beyond.
“I am so grateful for the tremendous generosity Frank DiMino and The Frank DiMino Foundation has shown our school. Mr. DiMino has truly made an impact at TKA and throughout the community. His investment will allow The King’s Academy to reach students at an earlier age with essential early childhood education and care,” shared TKA’s President Randal Martin. He went on to say, “The Frank DiMino Early Childhood Center will focus on the total development of a child’s social, spiritual, emotional, cognitive and physical needs in order to build a solid and broad foundation for lifelong learning and well-being in a safe, nurturing environment.”
For more than 50 years, The King’s Academy has been providing truly a distinctive Christian education with a commitment to excellence. The early childhood center will be comprised of caring educators who understand the commitment it takes to lead the youngest members of our school community. The center will challenge students in a vibrant and engaging environment while developing age-appropriate social, developmental, and cognitive skills where their natural sense of curiosity, wonder and joyful exuberance is encouraged. The curriculum will provide age-appropriate, high-quality academics based on standards derived from current research on brain-based learning and the Florida Early Learning Standards.
Mr. Frank DiMino is no stranger to The King’s Academy. Mr. DiMino’s name is displayed on many local and national facilities in honor of his generosity. He has been a wonderful supporter of The King’s Academy through the endowment of the school’s nationally recognized DiMino Engineering & Technology Program, support for the school’s championship Competitive
The King’s Academy mission is to graduate Christian leaders who seek to impact their world for the King of kings through academic excellence and spiritual vitality.
