The health and well being of all Kiski boys is of utmost importance to us. Kiski maintains a full-time health care facility, conveniently located adjacent to the dining hall. A school nurse is on duty throughout the entire school day and is also available at any time of the day or night for emergencies. We have a certified athletic trainer who specializes in the prevention, recognition, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries incurred by our students. Parents are notified immediately in case of an emergency.
Beyond physical health, we also support the mental health of our boys. Kiski recognizes that not every challenge our students face can be resolved by talking to a teacher, advisor, or coach. As a result, we provide counseling services as a resource for our boys to help them lead healthy well-balanced lives. Dr. William Bush, Kiski’s consulting psychologist, supports students in a wide variety of counseling issues including anxiety, depression, homesickness, relationship difficulties, parental strife, sexual identity, stress management, bereavement, and family issues.
The Kiski Learning Center aims to support students in achieving improved academic success. Academic and executive function skills are taught through direct, individualized instruction and through a practical application of content-based materials. Study methods are practiced with the Learning Specialist to ensure accuracy and maximum productivity. The ultimate goal for a student in The Kiski Learning Center is to acquire the skills necessary to become an independent learner working to his fullest potential. We work with each family to understand the needs of their son(s) and make the necessary accommodations within our ability.
