Arrival Info/Domestic Travel/Permission to Travel Form
The Student is responsible for his or her own travel expenses at the beginning and end of each school year. Students arriving by plane must arrive at Palm Beach International airport, on the required date(s), between the hours of 8am and 10pm local time.
Some students may choose to travel domestically during their tenure at TKA at their own expense. Students under the age of 18 may only travel under the direct supervision of their designated Host Family, a TKA staff member, an immediate adult family member over the age of 25, or a previously approved adult chaperone over the age of 25. Approval of adult chaperones will be at the sole discretion of The King’s Academy Secondary Leadership. All overnight visits must be approved by TKA Secondary Leadership using a Student Travel Form.
Travel will be permitted on a case-by-case basis and approval for such requests will be at the sole discretion of TKA Secondary Leadership. Incomplete permission forms will not be approved. Violation of this policy may result in the immediate removal of the student from the International Program and an immediate return to the student’s home country at the expense of the student’s natural family.
