Greetings from Keswick Christian School! Keswick has a rich heritage in our community. For over 60 years we have partnered with Christian families and their local church nurturing students in their walk with the Lord, as well as setting a high bar for academic excellence. And Keswick is the only Christian school in the area with Infant- 12th Grade programs. You will often hear KCS parents mention that being a part of Keswick is like being part of a family, and that is very much the atmosphere at our school. Our campus is a welcoming environment and our caring teachers and administrators view what they do as more than just a job; it's a calling. Keswick really is something special, and we hope you'll stop by or give us a call to find out more.
After attending several other area "Christian" schools throughout my education, I was so happy when my parents let me come back to Keswick. And I'm thankful to have graduated there. Because I KNOW what else is out there in Christian education, I always hoped my children would be able to attend Keswick some day. And now they do! KCS is the only Christian school in the county that requires at least one parent to be a believer in Jesus Christ and involved in a local church. And while that may not seem like a big deal, IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE in the classroom atmosphere and student body. For the most part there is a positive peer pressure and like-mindedness among students, teachers, and parents. Like a fellow reviewer on here said, Keswick really is a rare find!
Keswick is a great school. Our three children have been there since kindergarten. The teachers are committed to the success of the students. The family environment and and high quality education are amazing. This is school that puts Christ first in everything they do. One of my children graduated one year ago and is attending a top US Christian University. He started his first year of college as a Sophomore thanks to the AP classes he took at Keswick. Best Christian school in Pinellas County.
Keswick Christian School is a rare find. I challenge you to take one visit to the campus. The history of 60 years speaks for itself. Then you meet the administration and see how focused they are in coming along side of the family to educate your child in Christian love. They set the course for the teachers that follow through with the same desire. No other school in the area can compare to the campus setting at Keswick. The history of this school along with the staff and families that come together as one is not found at any other private K-12 school in Pinellas County. I challenge you to stop by and experience the difference a Keswick Christian School. We are blessed to be a part of this outstanding tradition.
Our children have been attending Keswick since PK-3 and they have enjoyed miraculous growth in their academics, the arts, in their interpersonal skills and respect toward others, and cultivated leadership talents as well. The spiritual development of our children has been what really sets Keswick apart. This has been evident not only to us as parents, but also to those who have who have witnessed their interactions outside the campus and our church. Partnering with both our church and us as parents, their experiences at Keswick have both reinforced and deepened their faith. The remarkable scope and quality of education is accomplished by the presence of the Holy Spirit working through the administration, faculty, and staff at Keswick all of whom we now consider as family. We continue to witness His work in our children. The loyalty, faith and commitment of those instructing our children are an inspiration to us. We ve been truly blessed by the opportunity to partner with Keswick in the development of our sons, and remain thankful such an awesome Christ-centered Biblically-based education is within reach of us both geographically and financially!
Keswick Christian School has played the single most significant role in the positive Christian development of our children outside of our home. Since kindergarten, KCS is the only school we've known. Our daughter is a junior in college now and we credit Keswick for both the scholorships she has earned and the relative ease of her transition to college. Our son continues to flourish in highschool at Keswick. The leadership, teachers and coaches place Christ at the center as they lead our childrent to pursue excellence in the classroom, on the field or court, and on the stage(choir, band, drama). We cannot image being anywhere other than Keswick.
Keswick Christian School is such a blessing to our family! Our daughter has been attending since 2009 and we have seen her grow leaps and bounds in academics, social abilities and spiritually. Finding a school to partner with us in teaching God's Word that has high academic standards is extremely important to us! If you are seeking the same, look no further than Keswick Christian School! They are an extension of our family and each teacher there is committed to educating the children, encouraging and loving them. We were looking for a preschool with no thoughts of further education when we visited the school. Once we toured the campus and learned that she could go from preschool through 12th grade we were thrilled. Additionally, I can tell you that the moment I stepped foot on the campus I knew it was different, unique and filled with the Holy Spirit. Our search for a school stopped there and we are so glad it did. We love Keswick Christian School and all of the staff!
First of all, I cannot say enough about Keswick Christian School. Not only did this school meet my expectations, but Keswick exceeeded my expectations. My daughter attended K-3 at Keswick and she grew socially, emotionally, academically, and spiritually. I believe in making sure that my child has a solid education foundation. A Christian foundation is equally important. My daughter, who was 3 at the time, knows how to pray and truly experienced the love of God at Keswick. It is a great school! We moved our daughter closer to home because it was a 45 minute drive from our home. I believe that we may send her back. Keswick was an awesome experience.
We love this school. It is truly an amazing place to send your child. If you are looking for a great place to send your children with teachers that care and encourage your children, look no further. Our daughter has attended for 9 years and there is no other school I would send her to. If it was necessary, I would get two jobs to keep her there. All levels of staff know and love the children. It is truly a family atmosphere.
Keswick is our home away from home! We love what our daughter gets everyday, not only a great education, but a reinforcement of what we teach at home and church. We have been at Keswick for over 14 years and we love it!!!
Keswick offers the best Christian education and academic curriculum around and the students are the best.
Knowing that my 5 year old son learns everything he needs to know academically as well as spiritually is worth every single penny in tuition that we pay! Seeing the way he's learning about the love of Jesus is priceless to us. We can't even imagine him attending school anywhere else!!! Keswick is the BEST!!!
Our children receive a great all around education. It is a great school academically and spiritually. The teachers and staff are excellent! They are committed to teaching our children with a Christian emphasis. We also have many sports to participate in. Our school offers Pre-K through 12th grade, so our children can grow up with the same friends they've known since they began school. We are committed to sending our children to a Christian School and we believe Keswick is the best in our area and our children love going to school at Keswick!
We are so happy the Lord placed us at Keswick. Our daughter experiences the love of Jesus every day there.
Small school with family atmosphere where my daughter has thirved the past 13 years. I love that is has a non-open enrollment and one parent must profess Jesus Chirst as their personal Lord and Savior to attend.....we have truly been blessed!!
Keswick Christian school is great!!! My son loves going to school. And the staff cares so much about the student and enjoys there jobs.
The staff is great. My child look forward to going to school. And growing in there walk with God.
Keswick Christian is a Great school. My Grandson goes to school each day with a smile on his face and a love for God and learning.
My two preschool-aged girls go to Keswick. There is no other place I would have them, to be loved and to learn, than here. The teachers and aids come along side my husband and me to encourage them in their strengths and to train them through weaknesses. We love KCS!
