Committed to spiritual development, the school is a missional school that nurtures personal relationships with Jesus Christ and equips students to know, to serve, and to believe. During the 2024- 25 academic year, KR anticipates serving a total enrollment of 996 students on its 92-acre campus, which is situated within the idyllic North Atlanta suburb of Alpharetta, Georgia.


KR has a passion to bring every student into a growing, personal relationship with Jesus Christ while equipping them to do with excellence all that God has called them to do. The school is preparing young men and women not just for college but also for life. Students have the freedom and encouragement to pursue knowledge, as well as their giftedness and calling, to the fullest extent possible. KR is a place where learning is contagious, the faculty is supportive, caring and engaging, faith is deepened, and exciting things are happening.
