Who We Are

The KICS Way

KICS seeks to prepare students who can excel academically and live out a biblical worldview.  We seek to accomplish this through the following: 

KICS is for all students, regardless of where they are on their faith journey. We believe that Jesus died for the sins of the whole world (I John 2:2),  and that in heaven we will worship with people from every nation, tribe, language, and  people (Revelation 5:9). As such, we welcome students from all faiths. Our desire is to  meet each student where they are on their journey and point them to Jesus along the way. We trust God to send His Holy Spirit in His time to reveal Himself to each student.  Whether that happens while they are students at KICS or at another time. Our approach is to be intentional in every way to introduce our students to the love, grace, and hope available to them in Jesus’ finished work on the cross. 

First, we are partners with parents in the education of their  children. We work together with parents to best determine the needs for each of their children at KICS. Secondly, we are partners with Rwanda in the sector of education.  Thirdly, we are partners with other organizations and families in Rwanda and the region who are serving God’s purposes, to help educate their children. We will work within all reasonable parameters to find a place for them and their children at KICS.  

Due to the founding family’s educational needs, the approach to education in the U.S., and the recognition of the U.S.  system in other parts of the world, we continue to use a U.S. accredited system at KICS.  The primary parts of the U.S. system we focus on are developing lifelong learners through  critical thinking and problem solving who can engage global issues. Our desire is that  each student who is served at KICS has the opportunity to go to the university of their  choice upon graduation. 

We serve students as young as preschool and as old as grade 12. We serve students with various levels of needs – those who are  struggling and those who are excelling, those who have a learning need, and those where  learning comes naturally. Our desire is to be a school where students within these ages and levels can be served.
