The Kiski School: No Ordinary Boarding School

You probably already realized The Kiski School is no ordinary boarding school. At The Kiski School, we designed our curriculum and created a nurturing environment specifically for boys who want to reach their full potential. Here are a few ways we distinguish ourselves from other schools as we help our students achieve success:

  1. Boy-Centric Learning
At Kiski, our curriculum has evolved based on thorough research about how boys learn best. Instead of being cooped up in a hot classroom all day where it’s difficult to pay attention, you’ll have the opportunity to actually apply what you learn to real-life situations. Hands-on learning and project-based learning play major roles in the academics at Kiski. You won’t just learn and memorize Newton’s Laws of Motion, but you’ll experience them for yourself as you conduct experiments and create unique projects.

  1. Welcoming Environment
One of the many ways we help boys learn at Kiski is by creating a nurturing environment where they can take risks. You won’t feel trapped in formulaic responses and studying methods at Kiski. You’ll have the opportunity to experiment and determine what works best for you. At Kiski, it’s okay to be wrong - we’ll help you learn from your mistakes so in the future, you can recover from missteps on your own.

  1. Resources and Opportunities
The quality resources and opportunities you’ll have access to at The Kiski School are unparalleled. Whether you’re interested in academics like math and science, sports, performing arts, visual arts, or business, we have what you need to succeed. With our state-of-the-art athletic training equipment, you can use the Ross Athletic Center to develop your athletic abilities. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, you can use our innovative makerspaces to create original projects and develop business plans and presentations to go along with them. No matter where your interests lie, you’ll have what you need to succeed at The Kiski School.
