Thank you for visiting The Kiski School website. We hope you like what you see and will contact us with your questions. It would be our pleasure to discuss with you the many wonderful features of The Kiski School and how they have benefited young men since 1888. 

Like all schools, Kiski students comprise the very heart and soul of who we are and what we stand for. Our boys are simply remarkable. They support and encourage each other. They are collegial and civil towards one another. They are goal-oriented, interested in doing their best not only in school but through the performing arts, on the athletic field and through community service, and most importantly, they are  gentlemen. They come to Kiski from all across the United States and in fact from all over the world. The student diversity provides a culturally enriching environment in many ways. What they will all have in common is the desire to achieve to the very best of their abilities and to carry on the traditions of one of America's best boarding schools.

Our faculty members are among the most dedicated anywhere. They are excellent in the classroom employing the many proven techniques for teaching boys that make our classes action-oriented, lively and fun environments to learn. After school they become coaches, advisors and dorm parents offering additional guidance, mentoring and leadership. We are not just good with boys, we are experts. 

Because of our small class sizes (10-12) and the student/teacher ratio of 6:1, we know and understand our students well. Boys receive personal attention on a new level that helps keep them engaged in their school work, active in extracurricular activities and gives a sense of satisfaction that they belong to a place that is meaningful to them. They are as proud of their school as we are of them, and it shows. 

Come see for yourself. You are invited to our open houses, athletic contests, or fine arts productions. We schedule tours of the campus with our student guides (K-Club members) each weekday from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. Give us a call so we can arrange for you to meet our students and faculty, observe classes and enjoy a meal in our dining room served family-style. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing you on campus soon. Please contact us at 1-877-547-5448 to learn more about The Kiski School.
