Preparing Students for Ongoing Success
As we continue to innovate our educational process, KHPS works closely with officials in the higher education setting, industry professionals, and employers in order to better prepare students for life after graduation. Consistently we hear that colleges, universities, and employers want students who possess the “soft skills” needed for success. These include leadership, teamwork, problem-solving skills, creativity, technical skills, flexibility/adaptability, and organizational and project management ability. The Knights STEM Academy is also focused on developing these important skills and more.

Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers.
