Campus life is exciting, challenging, and life-changing
Residential Life is a pillar of the Kiski Experience.
Kiski dorm life is an important part of the boarding school experience. You make lifelong friends and learn skills and habits that you will carry with you for the rest of your life. It’s not only about learning to be organized and adopting study skills; we also teach you to be comfortable with who you are. You learn to be yourself and to accept others for who they are. Your dorm is your extended family and a small part of a much larger community. Make some new friends, learn a few phrases in another language, show off your talents at guitar or singing or Frisbee or microwaving mac and cheese. You will treasure your downtime as you get some much-needed sleep on the weekends before you head off to your game or on a weekend trip. Get involved in dorm life and you will have one of the best experiences of your life. Make the most of it!
Inquire About Kiski
“The first couple of days the jacket and tie are kind of weird, but by day three you don’t think about it anymore. It would be one thing if you were the only kid wearing it, but to me, it’s like everyone in school wearing their lucky t-shirt and blue jeans. We don’t all look the same, but we all look respectable. At other schools, people dress in a particular way to show what clique they belong to. Here, we’re all one clique. There’s only one clique in this school and everybody here is a member.”

Student Clubs and Organizations
All of our boys cherish their free time, but they have their own ideas about the best ways to spend it. Students at Kiski gather to share their common interests in the following ways. Kiski students are encouraged to start their own approved organizations with the help of a designated faculty member. Each year we have additions to the list of organizations as the students' interests change. Our students feel comfortable starting a new club and recruiting members to join and have fun.
Here is a list of some of the clubs we have had offered:
