About the School

Khalil Gibran International Academy (KGIA) is a small International Baccalaureate (IB) school that offers students the opportunity to be known well. We embrace and celebrate the many cultures of our students and their families through monthly community celebrations and workshops. In the Fall of 2024, we will transition to a state-of-the-art facility with a new gymnasium, science lab, and outdoor terrace. We are guided by Community, Care, Rigor, and Relevance in all areas of our school. We provide opportunities to study Arabic or French language and explore careers that require bilingual and multicultural skills. In developing these skills, students will be well-prepared for college, careers, and positions as civic leaders in their community. Our students graduate with an understanding of different cultural perspectives, a love of learning, and a desire for excellence. We are committed to providing a rigorous education where students can reach their full potential and become influential leaders in the world.
