Kimball Union’s commitment to providing an incomparable student experience begins with an academic curriculum that allows students to dive deeply into their areas of strength and encourages them to explore new subjects. Rich and diverse course offerings led by accomplished faculty lay the groundwork for students to become intellectually curious and creative lifelong learners.
Through a college-directed core curriculum with a wide range of advanced placement classes, our academic program is designed to prepare you for success in college and beyond. The foundation of your academic experience will center around critical thinking and the development of effective analytical writing skills. 

Small classes ensure personal attention and engagement in subject matter. Our faculty will challenge and inspire you to reach your potential. Although you will be taught as an individual, positive collaboration with peers and teachers is essential to KUA’s learning process as it is life outside the classroom.
