Ways to Give


Dear Friends of KCS

I am pleased to offer you an opportunity to become a Partner with Knoxville Christian School. KCS strongly believes that we are developing children spiritually, emotionally, academically, and physically with the Lord Jesus Christ as their standard and the Holy Bible as their guide. Instilling Christian principles such as God first, work ethic, service focused, and appreciation for authority are just a few of the skills we strive to instill.

We are committed to producing students who will be great employees and who will give back to our community. In the last few years we have increased our ACT scores to an average of 25, and sent students to schools such as UTK, UTC, VMI, Dartmouth, Lipscomb, Harding, and Freed Hardeman. Currently our student population is around 200, and we strive to be a school of 300 within the next five years. We like our small school because we can work with students and their families in an effort to bring each student to their fullest potential.

One of the first things we are looking to do is to increase our visibility within the community. We are attempting to visit with the businesses in this area in an effort to share what is happening at KCS and gain input as to what our community partners see as needs. We are also looking for people and businesses to become involved in our school as prayer partners and as financial supporters.

The generosity of parents, alumni, grandparents and friends enhances the life of students and faculty every day! There are several ways to give to Knoxville Christian School. Gifts of all sizes and all forms are invaluable to KCS and many gifts have substantial tax benefits for the donor. KCS is a 501c3 Non-Profit organization and all donations are tax deductible according to what is allowed by federal law.

If you are interested in knowing more about KCS, we would love for you to schedule a tour or call and speak to one of our staff members. If you would like to get involved in helping KCS continue our mission while growing our school, please check out the links below.

Sincerely,

Jarra Snyder
Principal/President of KCS
