Thank you for your interest in KCS!  Applications for new students are processed on a first come, first served basis. Our application/interview process seeks to identify students who will significantly benefit from our program and, who will, with their parents, support our mission, objectives, and educational program.


We encourage you to tour our campus prior to submitting an application. The tour includes a time to talk to an administrator about our mission and program offerings, followed by a walk around campus. Tours are given year-round. Tours are typically scheduled in the morning hours on days our classes are in session.  Please call the school office at 732-1781 or complete our online form to schedule a tour.  We look forward to giving you a glimpse of "life at KCS"!
