Church officials say they will close the doors of King's Academy this coming school year because of a lack of funds.
The Rev. Jack Giles, pastor of the Church of the Way, which operates the Christian school, said it was a painful decision that had to be made.
A total of 12 teachers and 76 students had been set to return to King's Academy this fall for classes before officials decided to close it. The school is on State Boulevard Extension in north Meridian.
King's Academy is funded by student tuitions and donations through the church. Giles said he hopes to eventually find the means to re-open the school in the future.
