R. H. King Academy (also called R. H. King, RHKA, RHK or King) is a secondary school (and a de facto alternative school) located in Scarborough, Toronto, Ontario and is part of the Toronto District School Board. Founded in 1922 as Scarborough High School, the school became Scarborough Collegiate Institute in January 1930, before becoming R. H. King Collegiate Institute in 1954 and renamed again to R. H. King Academy in 1989. King was the first secondary school built in the former township of Scarborough and second-oldest surviving institution in the Scarborough district, after Agincourt Collegiate Institute. The motto for R. H. King Academy is "Per ardua Sapientia" (Through hard task of wisdom).
