Why Kiski?

List of 5 items.

  • 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. 
  • 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, and in the classrooms you'll find smart boards and top-notch lab equipment.
  • 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.
“My son is a bright kid, but in the public school he would not prepare for class, he would not hand in homework even if he did it, and he certainly would not even consider participating in class. Kiski changed all that. The kid who would recieve low grades in eigth and ninth grade not only graduate high school, but is going on to the University of South Carolina, and he’s thrilled about it.” — Cheryl Karner Friedlander
