King’s College is a four-year private school located in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. In 1946, the Congregation of Holy Cross accepted the invitation of Bishop William J. Hafey of Scranton to begin an independent four year college for men in Wilkes-Barre. Through its courses of study, sons of coal miners and men returning from the war were to be given a broad-based liberal education in the Catholic tradition that was to provide intellectual, moral and spiritual preparation to assist them in leading satisfying and purposeful lives. In the words of its founding President, Father James Connerton, CSC, "King’s teaches students not only how to make a living, but how to live." Major changes have occurred since the founding of King’s College, including the admittance of women in 1970.
King’s College offers certificates of completion, associate’s degrees, bachelor’s degrees, post baccalaureate certificates, and master’s degrees.
