Kiski has a long history and a rich heritage dating back to 1888.
The educational philosophy of Kiski’s founder, Dr. Andrew Wilson, was greatly influenced by the preceptorial system he experienced as a Princeton University student. Today, this teaching method – based on small classes and individualized tutorial sessions – remains the defining element of the Kiski experience. A traditional college preparatory curriculum is enhanced by diverse offerings in the arts and a robust technology program. Small classes allow our teachers , almost all of whom live on campus, to model the habits we expect our students to learn and practice: honesty, civility, tenacity and open-mindedness. Our teachers are experts in the education of boys . They understand their unique learning needs, they know how to reach and teach young men, and, most importantly, they love what they do. Moreover, our faculty is committed to helping our students develop what many have termed 21st century skills - the proficiencies they will need to survive and thrive in college and beyond.
