Upper School

Mrs. Bacon is working on the 2019-2020 schedules for teachers and students in KAVSIS.

Current students should have received an email from Mrs. Bacon for further instructions regarding electives.


The Upper School includes grades eight through twelve and offers a college preparatory curriculum in an environment that encourages development and participation for all students.  Our teachers are committed to the academic excellence and growth of all of our students.

In Upper School, in addition to our curriculum, the students have the opportunity to take Dual Enrollment classes offered through Southside Virginia Community College. We also offer classes in Art, Drama, Agriculture, and Exercise Science to list a few electives.

Students are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities such as sports, SGA, Model General Assembly, FCA, Scholastic Bowl, and Rotary Interact, to list a few. We encourage participation within the community for community service and pride ourselves on our well rounded students.

Ultimately, our mission is to foster the continuance of student development and growth into mature, responsible, college-bound students who understand the importance of leadership, scholarship, service and strong character.



Due to the forecasted weather conditions for tomorrow in the surrounding counties, Kenston Forest School will operate on a TWO-HOUR DELAY schedule on Friday, January 8th. BEFORE SCHOOL CARE will not be available.

We will continue to monitor the weather and provide updates in a timely manner if needed.
