Let’s Grow Together Campaign Update

We’re excited to announce that just one year into our two-year Let’s Grow Together campaign we’ve met our anonymous donor’s challenge of 1400 donors and 150 alumni donors who have contributed to the campaign! God is good! Thank you!

God’s blessings are abundant, and we continue to respond to those blessings together as the KML family. Reaching these aggressive goals signifies that our vision for the future of KML is moving forward at record speed, a future which includes God’s blessings of continued enrollment growth as well as expanded facilities.

As we approach the halfway point of the campaign, we have raised approximately half of our $10 million goal. We invite you to join us in offering prayers of thanks for the1400 donors as well as the nearly $5 million already committed to the project.

$4.87M as of May 11, 2023


Goal: $10M by June 30, 2024

We now pray that God will bless us through your continued support to hit the $10 million goal in this coming second year. We ask you to prayerfully consider a special Let’s Grow Together gift at this time which will advance KML’s goal of offering a Christ-centered education to more teens.

The time is now. Let’s Grow Together!

Host an International Student in 2023-24

KML is seeking families to host international students for the 2023-2024 school year. The number of host families that we have available determines the number of international student applications we will be able to accept. In exchange for a stipend of $750/month, host families provide housing, meals, and transportation from early to mid-August through the end of the school year.

KML’s international students are required to have a high-level of English fluency, but they may at first struggle to communicate. Many of them experience American culture for the first time when they come to KML, and our foods and customs may take them time to get used to. Host families need to be patient, understanding, and open-minded about the addition of an international student to their family.

Applications for hosting for the 2023-2024 school year need to be submitted by May 25, 2023. If you are interested in serving as a host family, please visit for more information.
