What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
King's College is unconventional and will teach me things I never thought I would learn. It's a great learning institution with compassionate and amiable professors. The classes are challenging while simultaneously mutually stimulating.
Brittny from Luzerne, PA
If you don't want to be just a number, instead you want to have a name and a say then King's is great for you. King's has a small campus where your professors know you by name and you can have one on one time with them for help and any questions you may have. King's has a wide array of different things to offer each and every student.
