Ranked in the top 10% of Christian schools in America, Kirk Day School has been preparing students for the academic rigors of college preparatory high schools since 1992. KDS grows graduates who excel academically, participate actively, and engage the world for Christ.
Our curriculum meets the educational goals of each unique student, ages 3 through 6th grade. Over 50% of Kirk Day School graduates enter honors programs upon entering middle school and high school. By the time our students are in 6th grade, they are working out of a 7th grade math book.
We believe each child is a unique creation of God and is valuable in His sight. It is our desire to provide a loving and caring environment that will foster an atmosphere for learning. We are passionately focused on meeting all the child’s needs: spiritual, physical, emotional, and intellectual.
Kirk Day School offers academic excellence with a Biblical worldview, all in the context of a warm and diverse community in which each person is respected and valued. Through a challenging and vibrant education rooted in God’s Word, our students are taught to become independent thinkers, taking the written or spoken idea, whatever its source, and measuring it by the Word of God.
