() is a government (funded) secondary school in the western district of Hong Kong Island
, and was founded in 1926. It is a boys-only college from Form (secondary grade) one to five and admits female students in its matriculate classes. Since its founding years, King's College has been renowned for the high academic performance and exceptional inter-school competition achievements of its students. It is therefore considered one of most eminent secondary schools in Hong Kong. It is also notable that the College has many distinguished alumni who are well-known in the region for notable accomplishments in their fields or currently holding important positons in public office, which may have contributed to the College's lasting reputation. The historical building which houses the college has evolved over the years since its establishment in 1926. It was once damaged in World War II
and rebuilt and refurnished after the war. Since then the orthodox structure has reserved its current facades of grey granite columns against a background of crimson bricks, arched corridors and cavernous garden, an image widely held by its students and the public as an epitome of the college.
The motto of the College is 慎思篤行, which translates literally as "meticulous thoughts, diligent actions".
