King's Academy

King’s Academy is a co-educational private boarding school that opened its doors in August 2007 in Madaba-Manja, Jordan. It is named in honor of King Abdullah II of Jordan. King Abdullah attended high school at Deerfield Academy in the United States as there was no school of comparable standing in Jordan when he was a boy, but his son Crown Prince Hussein was a member of the new school's first intake. The new school's first headmaster, Dr. Eric Widmer, was a former headmaster of Deerfield.

Located at 31.7533, 35.8481 (Lat. / Lng.), about 3 miles away.
