Hello! I am fairly new to Kimball Union Academy, which I chose because the adults are amazingly tuned in to the academic and developmental needs of adolescents. Here, the faculty practices an experiential approach to learning; students are asked to engage in their studies and to find and follow their passions. We agree that it is better to ask a good question than answer one, that curiosity leads to research and experimentation, that we all learn best in a comfortable and safe relationship with our teachers and peers, that fear compromises learning, and that respect governs all relationships.
Rather than hear about what I have found at KUA, please come see for yourselves what a fine, healthy, and happy group of learners, young people and adults alike, is gathered here on The Hilltop.
