    South Florida resident and philanthropist, Mr. Frank DiMino, has made a generous $1 million donation to The King’s Academy to endow its Engineering Program.

    This endowment will allow the school to expand its STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) faculty and provide merit and need-based scholarships. In recognition of his gift, the program has been named the DiMino Engineering Program.

    Investing in our future, begins with helping young adults reach their potential today. It is my pleasure to give this gift to the TKA STEM program, this endowment will allow students work towards improving our future for many generations. ~Mr. Frank DiMino

    Mr. DiMino is a long time resident of South Florida. According to real estate records, in 1999, Mr. Dimino purchased a residential home on .7 acres in Delray for $2M.

    Long before his most recent investment in The King’s Academy’s science programs, Mr. DiMino’s achievements were recognized in the business world, having won the National Asphalt Pavement Association’s prestigious Ecological award for his work on the paving of the main runway of Rochester-Monroe County Airport, over 30 years go.

    He continues to promote scientific innovation, including his most recent investment in The King’s Academy’s science programs.

    “Investing in our future, begins with helping young adults reach their potential today,” said Mr. DiMino. “It is my pleasure to give this gift to the TKA STEM program, this endowment will allow students work towards improving our future for many generations.”

    Mr. DiMino was born in Grotte, Sicily. His family immigrated to the United States in 1935 when he was a young boy and eventually settled in Rochester, New York.

    At a young age, Mr. DiMino assisted his mother in the financial support of his family. It was undoubtedly this situation that sparked his lifelong passion for entrepreneurship and philanthropy.

    At the height of his entrepreneurial activity, Mr. DiMino owned and operated a wide variety of businesses. His generosity is reflected in the many local and national facilities that are named in his honor.

    “Words alone cannot properly express our appreciation to Mr. DiMino. His generosity will allow The King’s Academy to more effectively instruct students who express an interest in the field of engineering. It is my hope that TKA students will meet the challenges of an increasingly complex world with engineering and technological solutions. This endowment will sustain our engineering program into the future and allow TKA to offer a world-class program.”  -Randal L. Martin, TKA President

    Throughout its 49-year history, The King’s Academy has implemented programs that enhance the focus and mission of the school to graduate Christian leaders who will impact their world.

    TKA recently completed the Boswell Science & Technology Center which houses its STEM program classes. Mr. DiMino’s gift will allow for growth of the school’s engineering program and will provide students the opportunity to explore this fast-growing field, whether for curiosity’s sake or as a career path.

    Through the program, students learn to think critically, work collaboratively, and explore how math and science work in everyday life. Students engage in open- ended problem solving, learn and apply the engineering design process, and use the same industry- leading technology and software as the world’s top companies. The engineering program has been nationally recognized by Project Lead the Way as a distinguished program; an honor that is reserved for a mere 133 schools nationwide.

    “We are so grateful for Mr. DiMino’s generous gift which will allow our PLTW Distinguished Engineering program to continue to grow and flourish. Albert Einstein once said, ‘Scientists investigate that which already is; engineers create that which has never been.’ This endowment will continue to allow the TKA Engineering program to prepare students while they explore the field of engineering, make the leap from dreamers to doers and create that which has never been. So many lives will be impacted, and we have Mr. DiMino to thank.”  – Keith Allen, DiMino Engineering Program Director
