MISSION STATEMENT

To provide a high school education that lays the foundation for good citizenship through the development of high moral and Christian values, achievement of academic excellence and a well-rounded personality utilizing sports and other co-curricular activities.

a brief history
A Brief History

Kingston College was declared open on Thursday, April 16,1925 at a ceremony held in the courtyard of the old Rectory on East Street. The following day, the first forty-nine students registered and classes began on Monday, April 20.

According to the minutes of the Synod of 1925, the school was founded by Bishop deCarteret with Reverend P.W.Gibson as the first headmaster.

The colour purple was chosen because it is the colour worn by Christian Bishops, the colour used by the Greeks to honour their Olympic champions and the colour of the leading Empire in History – Rome.

Today , Kingston College has over one thousand eight hundred (1800) students with an academic staff of one hundred (100). The school has achieved successes over the past eighty-two (82) years in every field – academics, sports and the arts.
