From the Head of School

Welcome to klht.org. I hope that you find our Web site both interesting and informative. The site is intended to be helpful to students, parents, trustees, faculty, graduates, and prospective students.

headportratThe news, information and contacts that are presented on this site should help you learn more about the school and determine where to find additional information. If you are a parent or student thinking of applying to KLHT, this is a great place to learn about us before calling our Admission Office to arrange a formal visit. If you are a current parent who needs to check an athletic schedule or a vacation schedule, you will find that information here. If you are a graduate of the school, I hope you will take the time to browse through this site and gain an understanding of where the school is today.

I encourage everyone who is visiting this site for the first time to look at our Mission, which is accessible through the home page. This Mission is newly revised, and it is the most important policy statement of the school. A thoughtful reading of this Mission will give you a feel for the character of KLHT.

This is truly a special school. The breadth of program, the academic challenge, and the strength of community all serve our students well. Our students are able, our faculty is attuned to the needs of each student, and our parents are contributing partners in the education of their children. Our trustees are committed to quality strategic planning that will ensure the future development and strength of the school. Our graduates share a rich and unique history, a history that you can review on this Web site.

I hope that you enjoy klht.org, and that it provides you with the information you are seeking. If you need something that is not on this site, please do not hesitate to be in touch with the school directly.

Thank you,

Thomas B. Main
Head of School
