I transferred to KCD in 7th grade, and do not regret that decision! Because it is a small school environment, the community is very close knit. I've loved my teachers because of how invested they are in their students. They truly want us to succeed and I think it shows in our college readiness. There are so many ways to get involved in the KCD community whether it be clubs, sports, arts, or academics. The connections you make during your time at KCD and the help of the college counselors give you a great head start for college.

KCD is the real deal. We transferred here last year as it was obvious this school is head and shoulders above its competition and the independent school we left. There is good reason KCD is ranked the #1 private school in the state of KY (and also ranked highly among private schools in the US). Passionate teachers, experienced administration, global diversity, perfect blend of academics, art and athletics, and perfect blend of 21st century and traditional curriculum combine to create so much opportunity for my kids, both in and out of the classroom. A true culture of engagement and substance in a SAFE neighborhood which allows students to thrive. I also liked the Admissions team of professionals capably introducing us to the school and trying to help us find a best fit experience. One year later... we are still impressed and happy.
I wouldn't say this school is bad in terms of materialistic goods and safety. It really excels in those areas, with a basement for STEM students, a theater for performances, and multiple rooms for sports.

This school lacks diversity in ethnicity, socioeconomics, and opinions as well as support for arts. This may sound contradictory with the existence of a theater, but I'm referring to the dearth of support within the student body.

If you have the money and are only focusing on getting your kid(s) to look good on paper and get into college, then by all means attend.

If, however, you want to give your kid(s) worldly knowledge and true passion for learning...this wouldn't be the right institution for you.
