"What is Happening To Our Beloved Kiski?"

The economy is struggling. Inflation is challenging many people in our country. You might be thinking that this is the time to hold back a little on donations. I understand this sentiment, but if we do not act, we are in imminent danger of losing the Kiski we love, and our boys’ and grandsons’ futures could be much worse.

Do you think our latest headmaster and board of directors are scaling back?

You know the answer. They continue expanding facilities and overhead far beyond their revenue. The leadership’s mismanagement is not just financial. They continue developing failed ideas that put the school in this deficit position. Their latest idea is to go coed. Their financial documents are published publicly, and the evidence of mismanagement is clear.

The fight for the truth has never been cheap. It’s getting more expensive by the day. The Friends of Kiski Prep isn’t letting up. We are expanding. We are stretching ourselves in every area to make absolutely sure we did everything we positively could to fight for the good and save our beloved Kiski from the current administration’s flawed decisions and direction. Our initial campaign, “Keep the Kiski School, All Boy,” raised over $500,000. Our new campaign is called “Bring Back Jack!” because the board confronted our former headmaster to go coed, but he resisted and kept the school as it was founded, “all boys.” You can read more about Jack below. Our mission is to raise 42 million and create an endowment of new capital that will return the school to its roots and stabilize it for the future.

We can’t do it alone. I ask you to stretch with us. We need every dollar for our fight. Every dollar is used with care, period. Every dollar helps us save another boy who would benefit from Kiski’s original mission.

We encourage you to review the books, articles, and resources on this site as we intend to lead the conversation on single-sex education for boys and girls in this country. God bless you and your loved ones. And bless you for fighting for Kiski by supporting Friends of Kiski Prep.
