The Kiski School

Tel: (724)639-3586
Grades: 9 - 12 | 199 students
The mission and purpose of The Kiski School is to prepare young men to succeed in college and in life.
We are a School for boys: an environment for living and learning built around a boy's unique qualities and dedicated to serving each boy's needs.
We believe in the fullest development of every boy's mind, body and soul, and do so by exposing each to growth opportunities in our academic, athletic, artistic, and extracurricular arenas.
We believe in an academic environment that stretches our boys' capacities, ignites a passion for the pursuit of knowledge, and creates ambitious thinkers who can compose and command their own unique thoughts.
The Kiski School sits on a wooded bluff high above the confluence of two sparkling streams that form the Kiskiminetas River, which then flows north and west toward the Allegheny River.
