Our Mission:
Kinkaid's mission is to promote educational excellence, personal responsibility, and balanced growth, and thereby to help its students to discover and develop their talents and to fulfill their best potentials.

Our Philosophy:

Photo of College Preparatory School in Houston, TXFrom its earliest days Kinkaid has emphasized both academic attainment and character development. Our founder, Margaret Kinkaid encouraged her students to seek honor as well as achievement, and she described her ideal student as "the intellectually capable boy or girl of sound character whose talents, interests, and uniqueness are educational assets for other Kinkaid children."

Today's Kinkaid remains faithful to its founder's calling, valuing its students for their potential, as well as their achievement, and striving always for their balanced growth-intellectual, physical, social, and ethical. The primary goals of Kinkaid are intellectual endeavor and achievement. The School also believes that a well-rounded education includes experiences in the arts, athletics, and a variety of extra-curricular activities. 

Kinkaid further believes that every student is and will continue to be part of a community and, therefore, seeks to strengthen his or her moral responsibility and service to it. To that end, the School actively promotes honesty, respect, responsibility, and kindness. Kinkaid also believes that participation of parents in their children's education is essential to accomplishing its mission. The School makes every attempt to inform them of the School's purposes and goals, and expects their strong support in the pursuit of these aims.

Academics:

A well-rounded curriculum is Kinkaid's hallmark of excellence, as evidenced through all three school divisions. The Lower School faculty uses stimulating academic classes as well as art, music and physical education to nurture, encourage and support each student to explore, observe and discover the world around them.

Expanding beyond the foundation of skills developed in the Lower School, the Middle School faculty teach a challenging core curriculum that is further enhanced by increased extra-curricular activities. Middle School students develop the tools to become independent learners as well as team players.

Kinkaid's Upper School boasts a national reputation for academic excellence. Upper School students are required to carry a minimum of five graded courses per semester and complete 20 academic credits. The 20 required credits include: four years of English; three of history, mathematics and science; two of foreign language; one fine arts graded elective; and four academic or graded electives. Additional required credits include: one semester of service, four years of Interim Term, computer proficiency, eight of a possible 12 seasons of physical education or interscholastic sports and one semester of health education.
