Greetings from the Board

Dear CAK family and friends,

I have been privileged to be the President of the Board of Trustees at Christian Academy of Knoxville for almost three years. It has been a time of transition for the CAK family, but God has been faithful. The history of CAK began with prayer, a few faithful people believing that God wanted to establish a Christian school in Knoxville to come alongside Christian families. The first year started with 100 students and from that time to the present CAK has gone through many changes including going from a country day school to a college preparatory academy.

My own family’s journey with CAK began when Susan and I believed that God led us to apply for my older son to start half-day kindergarten. He began in Mrs. Sims class in 1991. He is now 34 years old, married with three children of his own. Our other three children also attended CAK and are now married and starting their own families. I have been fortunate to stay connected to CAK these many years because I believe in the benefits of Christian education and training our children to have a Christian worldview that they might be able to face all the world has for them and in turn impact the world for Christ.

As we are in our 42nd year of education at CAK I think there is likely to be even more opportunities to enhance the Christian educational experience that is CAK. I continue to believe our school is poised to achieve new plateaus of success in many areas – academically, spiritually, athletically, and in service to our community. This potential is built upon the foundation of prayer and faithful leadership of CAK during these many years.

Please join me in continuing to support CAK financially and to lift up CAK, its students, teachers, staff, and families in prayer. We are asking God to bring families who are looking to partner with CAK in educating their children with a Biblical worldview in a Christ-centered environment. Please don’t underestimate the “Christ-centered environment.” Many families who have come to CAK comment on that aspect as being critical in their decision to come to CAK and to make the investment to stay.

In His Service,

Will Ferguson
