Parents' Perspective

What better gift can we give our children than a Biblical understanding of the world around them? To have God’s perspective on events and decisions in their lives is priceless.
— Alan and Laura Stanfill

"Kirk Day School is a special place where teachers strive to identify and develop each child's unique gifts and abilities to their fullest God-given potential.  Over the years, we have watched our sons' confidence and love of learning grow in response to such intentional instruction, and it is a blessing to work with KDS to educate our children!"

"We fell in love with Kirk Day School because it is a truly diverse environment where our children are not being sheltered from the world, but rather being taught how to engage and serve it. At KDS, our children are shown what Christ's grace looks like to them as individuals, and also what grace looks like in a larger community. The experienced and loving KDS staff meet our children where they are right now, coming alongside us, as parents, to teach, guide and grow them. We have seen KDS challenge our children spiritually, academically and socially, preparing them for their future; while allowing them to play in God's creation and be the kids they are today!"

“While I was deployed, I knew my wife and sons were well cared for by the Kirk Day School community.  This is such an amazing school with supportive caring people and I was confident that their loving kindnesses would surround my family and encourage them through the difficult times until my return.”

Major Bill Luthin

“We have lived all over the country and have found in Kirk Day School a nurturing and caring home for our family.  Most people have no idea how unique KDS is unless they have traveled to other places.  I can say with confidence that this school is irreplaceable.  There is no other school that weaves Biblical teaching through a strong academic program so seamlessly and in such a grace filled loving environment.”

Regan Luthin


"Having gone through the public school system ourselves, the notion of sending our children to a Christian school was a foreign one. But we are so thankful that we chose Kirk Day School. We delight in the ways that they explore the beauty of God's creation by studying the arts and sciences with academic rigor. We are thankful for the focus on the gospel of grace. Our children have found security in God's love for them as they are loved well by the staff at KDS."

“We have had four children each with their own personalities and needs attend KDS.  They were all prepared socially, academically, and spiritually to attend Westminster.  We have to thank KDS for their strong academic approach and faith-centered faculty and for the grace of God.”

"When our oldest daughter was approaching Kindergarten age, we began to search for a Christian school with excellent academics, in a safe and loving environment.  We chose Kirk Day School for our two daughters and it has been one of the best decisions we have made as parents.  Our daughters love their school and are thriving in every aspect of their education. The leadership of Kirk Day School’s administration provides an atmosphere of excellent academics and devotion to God, that drives the entire school.  I am continually amazed with their wisdom and godliness."

“ Strong academics in a Christian environment and a loving atmosphere in which teachers really connect with students were paramount as we selected a school for our four children.  We found both at KDS and our children have blossomed academically and spiritually.  It’s a joy to see them so excited about school! ”

Todd and Jennifer Zell

"KDS has been a tremendous blessing to our family.  The teachers and staff truly care about our children.  Knowing that God’s truth is being taught in the classroom is the most important part of Christian education.  Our children’s hearts are being nurtured and they are growing spiritually as well as academically.  We think KDS is really one of the hidden jewels in the St. Louis Christian school community!"
