Why Kiski?

List of 6 items.

  • Because Kiski is life-changing

    Our mission is to prepare boys for college and life. We do this through rigorous academics, leadership skill building, a project-based, boy-centric curriculum and the boarding process itself.  As a boarding student, boys learn time management, independence and how to live with a roommate.  Kiski boys live, learn and compete together. This experience builds a bond and brotherhood with fellow Kiski boys that truly lasts a lifetime.
  • Because you cannot beat an all-boys education

    And The Kiski School is one of the few such schools in the nation. That means it's designed specifically for you – not for girls and not for a coed crowd. It means you'll experience a camaraderie that is uniquely powerful and positive; and you'll be prepared for college and for life as a man – a man of skill, integrity, and confidence. 

    The Science Behind the Male Brain
  • Because the teachers are there for you.

    With small classes – usually eight to ten students – Kiski boys experience a positive, interactive, personal education. Your questions are answered. Your curiosity is sparked. Your talents are recognized and developed. And in those cases when you have more questions, your teacher is available. Teachers live on campus, and they're ready to help.
  • Because you'll find yourself in an exceptional community.

    At Kiski, you belong to a tight-knit community as you're also exploring who you are as an individual, and who you might be as a man. That means we're diverse, supportive, and interested in you; it also means that we want you to take risks, and we'll support you as you do.
  • Because you'll have the technology you need to excel.

    Within the context of a strong, classic liberal arts curriculum, our technology enhances what and how you learn. The laptop program ensures every student has a laptop computer and the skills to use it. Our expanded selection of maker tech (laser cutters, 3d printers, vinyl cutter, woodworking tools and more) allow your creativity to be unleashed, turning your ideas into full-scale objects.
  • Because we work and play hard – otherwise, what's the point?

    At Kiski, every boy is involved in sports. And just about everything you learn on the field is something you can use in the classroom. We try. We win. Sometimes, we lose. But we're confident, competent, and in many ways, unbeatable.
