A Letter From Our Head of School
For high school boys, Kiski is a life-changing experience. I know because I joined the faculty in 1990 and, since 2002, I’ve had the honor of being the Head of School. I’ve witnessed the remarkable effects that this exceptional place has on boys. Through our encouraging environment, boy-centric teaching, and attentive staff, students slowly and surely transform into confident, responsible, caring young men. In doing so, they develop bonds that last a lifetime. It’s always rewarding to see.
Kiski’s long history has been marked by constantly improving on our ability to ensure every boy thrives. Today, we offer a dynamic college preparatory curriculum, enhanced by diverse offerings in the arts and a robust STEAM program. Small classes allow our teachers, almost all of whom live on campus, to model the habits we expect our students to learn and practice: honesty, civility, tenacity, and open-mindedness.
Our teachers are experts in the education of boys. They understand their unique learning needs, they know how to reach and teach young men, and, most importantly, they love what they do. Moreover, our faculty is committed to helping our students develop the skills and proficiencies they will need to survive and thrive in college and beyond.
We are very proud of the broad diversity that exists within our school community. It’s our responsibility to provide the necessary framework to guarantee it is nurtured and sustained in order to ensure that all of our students know that they are valued, supported, and loved.
If you’re a prospective family, please take a moment to explore our site and learn why Kiski may be the best choice for your son. I hope then you will be persuaded to plan a visit to our campus. We are enthusiastic about recent investments in our facilities and outreach. More important, we are proud of our outcomes—students who are succeeding in every way through life-changing classes, opportunities, teachers, and friendships.
All good wishes,
Christopher A. Brueningsen
Head of School
