King School immerses students from Greenwich, CT in a community where students become agents in their own learning. When students are exploring, reflecting, questioning, evaluating, and making connections — and teachers are creating and guiding these moments of discovery — students are truly learning. This is what King calls inquiry-based learning, and it is what students do at every grade level and in every discipline. Elementary school, middle school, and high school students have the opportunity to research, experiment, develop new skills, work together on projects and find their passions.

Fairfield County students are prepared by King's college counseling four year developmental program that enables each student to discover the most competitive fit. Each student, starting in Grade 9, is paired with an experienced college counselor who guides the college preparatory journey, including partnering on: curricular strategy; standardized testing strategy; college visits; identifying a college list; completing applications; and making a thoughtful, final decision. King strengthens students from Greenwich and surrounding areas to pursue their passions beyond their years at King Private School. At King School, we believe each student deserves to pursue their passions in an environment that is challenging, scholarly, and the best fit for them. The world is rapidly changing; no one knows what the future will bring, but King graduates will be ready – ready to succeed and better prepared to better the world!
