The Kiski School

  • 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.
