Honor Code

As a member of the Kimball Union community, I promise to uphold a code of honor, to expect and to encourage the same of others, and to do so in all situations and in all places. This code of honor includes being honest in all matters, behaving with integrity, and demonstrating respect for myself and others.

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.

Leadership Opportunities

One of the most valuable assets of being a part of the KUA family is the opportunity to take on leadership roles- in the classroom, on the playing fields, in the theatre, in student government, or in almost any pursuit that matches a student's interest. The role leaders play on campus is crucial to promoting a healthy learning environment and mentoring their peers.  In the day to day fulfillment of their responsibilities our leaders find out what it truly means to lead, developing skills that serve them well beyond their time on The Hilltop.
