What is Kingston College?
Kingston College is an all boys’ traditional high school located in Kingston, Jamaica. It occupies two campuses: The Melbourne campus on Upper Elletson Road and the larger North Street campus. Some 1900 students are enrolled.
Kingston College is also referred to as “KC” and is well known for the loyalty of its students and alumni who proudly display what is known as the “Fortis Spirit” of determination and perseverance. These qualities are enshrined in the school’s motto, “Fortis Cadere Cedere non Potest” which is Latin for “The Brave May Fall but Never Yield.”
The school is noted for a strong academic and sports tradition. It also boasts a world class boys’ choir, the Kingston College Chapel Choir that has given concerts across the island and overseas.
The school is owned by the Diocese of Jamaica and the Cayman Islands (Anglican).
Students are prepared to sit the CSEC and CAPE examinations.
