We Give Thanks

Now is the time of year that we spend reflecting on the things for which we’re thankful. At KD College Prep, we are grateful for many things, but above all, we are blessed to work with crazy-talented students and their families.

Add in dedicated teachers and a company full of like-minded, caring, and talented directors and staff, and then you have a Thanksgiving recipe for success that is served all year long. What a blessing.

In the spirit of the season, we wanted to share some of our favorite things and that for which we’re most thankful.

Things We’re Thankful For

Our Students & Their Families

We are blessed to work with so many bright and talented students. We also love getting to know their families. Since 1992, we have served more than 65,000 students and their families in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

Our Teachers

Our teachers are the heart and soul of our work at KD College Prep. Their incredible passion and care for our students is amazing.

Many of our teachers take on test prep in addition to full-time teaching jobs at school districts throughout the area. We are grateful for their hard work and ability to go above and beyond to serve KD students.

Our Community

KD College Prep is blessed to have campuses in vibrant communities throughout the Metroplex. Whether it’s through attending a high school football game or charity event, we love supporting our communities and contributing to their growth.

Our Staff & Leadership

We are grateful for our staff’s dedication to serving our students and working toward our goals. We are so lucky to be a business that attracts talented individuals, and our growth would not be possible without the team we have built over the years.

In addition, we are thankful for our leadership. Karen and David Dillard’s 27 years of hard work, dedication, and passion for making a difference in the lives of their students is what led to KD College Prep becoming one of the top test prep companies in Dallas-Fort Worth.
