Covid-19 & Grad - What Happens Now?

Short Answer - We Don't Know.  

We are hopeful that by the end of June, gatherings will be able to take place again and Grad 2020 (or some version of it) may be a possibility.  However, at this point there is just too much uncertainty to make any decisions or commitments.  Over the coming weeks the KAHS staff will be discussing what options we have in regards to Grad.  

Please keep watching this website and your email for any updates.  As soon as we have any information to share, we will share it.  In the mean time, we encourage students to concentrate on their course work, as learning is still the priority.  

Scholarships & Bursaries
