"One aspect of a KO education that is especially valuable is its emphasis on writing. From Middle School to Symposium, I learned how to critically evaluate others' ideas and to synthesize my own, which will continue to serve me well in all facets of my life." Benjamin Waldman 16, double major Math and Political Science at Yale University

“Both of my children love their KO experience, especially the friendships, academic opportunities, and athletic competition. My older son just finished his first year in college, where he plays football and is majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. My younger son, who started at KO in 6th grade, has evolved from a quiet and somewhat shy student, to one who is now so comfortable speaking up that his teachers recommended him for public speaking.” — Tammi Bolden
