Upper School


The Power of Possibility

At King, our students bring a unique blend of interests and talents to the educational experience. No two journeys are the same. Our schedule allows the flexibility for students to pursue passions and explore new interests. King students have access to a wide range of offerings that allow them customize their studies while deepening their identities as scholars.

King offers a four-year college counseling program. Starting in Grade 9, students are paired with an experienced counselor who guides the college preparatory journey. Students work with their counselors, teachers, and families to shape their curricular and co-curricular strategies, prepare for standardized tests, identify the right list of colleges, complete applications and make the right selection.

King's Upper School emphasizes self-knowledge, expansive learning, and courageous thinking the very qualities that lead to happy and healthy lives filled with possibility. 

Upper School Students Emphasize Courageous Learning

At King, we emphasize that an excellent education takes students where they want to go. We also believe that courage and compassion are essential components in the search for purpose, a key element of a King education. Our students support one another as they begin to bring their ambitions into sharper focus and work to achieve their goals, cheered on by the whole community.
