How You Can Help

KMS raises 100% of its operating budget through tuition and fees. But we depend on the generosity of our families, alumni, and community supporters to help cover the cost of financial aid, building improvements, and other special projects. All contributions to KMS are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

KMS Supporters

KMS deeply appreciates the many ways our current families, alumni, and friends support the school – by donating their time, energy, and skills and/or through financial contributions.
