The Best Environment for Learning

Whether it means diving deeper into areas of strengths, or taking new steps to explore previously unknown subjects, the Kimball Union faculty encourages students to move beyond their comfort zones.
Within a traditional college preparatory curriculum, KUA students find small classes (averaging 11 students), superior advising, and first-class faculty who engage them in academic lessons in a way no previous educational experience has. Rich and diverse course offerings lay the groundwork for students to become  intellectually curious and creative lifelong learners.
