My children have been attending KCD since Junior Kindergarten (now 6th & 4th). I am constantly amazed by the dedication of the teachers and administrators. Not only are my children receiving, what I believe is, the best education in the Louisville area but they are learning skills that will prepare them to be well rounded adults. The school motto: Citizen, Scholar, Steward is apparent everywhere you look! It is an exciting time to be a Bearcat!

My two sons have been enrolled at KCD since Junior Kindergarten. They're now in the upper school. We've been pleased with their education and the opportunities presented to them at every stage. The teachers are warm and caring. They are willing to stay after school to help students with their work. There are many opportunities to try different kinds of athletics and arts. The parent community is welcoming. It's been a great fit for our family.
