Statement of Inclusion
Celebrating Individuality, Community, and Global Awareness
Kimball Union Academy is dedicated to providing a welcoming and safe environment in which all community members value and respect each other’s unique qualities and contributions.
We are committed to nurturing a learning environment where the principles of dignity, equity, and justice are an essential part of our culture and daily life.
We encourage the exploration of independence and interdependence as we affirm our promise to honor individuality, celebrate our differences, and embrace our connections with each other and the global community.
LEAD BY EXAMPLE
One of the most valuable assets of being a part the KUA family is the opportunity to take on leadership roles—in the classroom, on the playing fields, in the theater, in student government, or in almost any pursuit that matches a student’s interest. KUA students learn quickly that when they are passionate about something, they have an immediate opportunity to make a difference and shape the world around them. Discovering and nurturing that innate capacity to lead requires the support of peers and mentors, to both challenge and support.
