Student Leadership in Learning

Capable, self-driven, principled, and difference-making. These are the students of KCS.

For 35 years, KCS has been developing students who stand out for their knowledge, skills and character.

Our Four Doors to Learning program ensures they are strong in academics, arts, athletics, and citizenship. Our commitment to wellbeing helps them thrive. Open-ended student leadership, place-based learning, student-driven inquiry, engagement with external experts, and entrepreneurship offer a rich journey of discovery, about the world and themselves, that distinctly prepares them for wherever life takes them.

See what leadership in learning looks like. See what’s possible when students realize their potential.
