Recent graduates agree: KUA prepared them well for the demands of college.

Within a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum, Kimball Union students find themselves:

Additional mastery and depth of knowledge can be attained by participation in Signature and Scholar Programs, which promote leadership and add academic rigor to the student experience.
