Day School Advantage

As the premier day school in central Connecticut, our ability to create meaningful partnerships between students, faculty, and parents is incredibly effective in our mission for students to own their journey here. Using the city as our campus, we can also collaborate with our alumni and parent community locally to enhance the student experience in and out of the classroom. At the end of each day, our students get to go home each evening and share about their day.

Get Involved in Your Own Way

KO offers a wide range of athletics, arts, clubs, and other activities. If a student has a passion for something, we have a way for them to make it a part of their day. You really do not need to pick and choose, you can try it all! We are always adding new clubs and initiatives to our community.
