Visio Fidei' (The Vision of Faith): our motto underpins the care of our school life. King's Baptist Grammar School is one which is centred around the Christian faith. It draws its strength from that sure rock and provides an educational context which is underpinned by faith in and witness to, our Lord. Christ is glorified as our King and our school reflects that in its name.
King's is affiliated with the South Australian Baptist Union of Churches. We have close links with neighbouring Baptist churches and with the Union and look to them for spiritual direction and support. However, we are truly interdenominational in focus. We stress the tenets of faith which are common to all orthodox Christian churches.

A focus on students achieving their personal best.
King's Baptist Grammar School supports the concept that there are a number of different ways that people learn and aims to develop the unique skills and gifts of each student. Special programs offered vary according to need but have included Tournament of Minds, Music Groups, the Maths Talent Quest, Debating, Chess Club, Science Club and Creative Writing Club.
Students are supported through each level of their schooling at King's with an Additional Education program for individuals and small groups. Our Additional Education Department conducts individual programs for students, particularly in literacy and numeracy and specialised computer programs enhance skill development in small groups. A Reading Recovery Program is offered in our Junior Primary.
We strive to provide a safe learning environment where students gain the confidence in themselves to meet life's challenges, build lasting relationships and gain a clear understanding of who they are in Christ.
King's offers every student and every family a strong Christian community - beginning in the classroom.
Staff members at King's have an appreciation for and understanding of Christian living. Exploration, discussion and response to the gospel, help students learn to demonstrate concern and passion for their world and build an appreciation for people in need.
The classroom Teacher is the most easily accessible point of contact for student, parent and school. These Teachers provide special attention for students in their care. Emotional, academic or behavioural problems can be addressed immediately and effectively.
As students within the Middle School increasingly explore greater specialist subject offerings, they retain strong connections with one key Teacher, their Pastoral Care Group Teacher, with whom they spend a significant part of their learning week.
Pastoral Care provides for the student’s care and guidance through:
- Pastoral Care Group Teachers
- School Chaplains
- School Leaders
- Year Level Co-ordinators
- School Administration
