What it Means to Be a Student-Led School

As a student-led school, students take an active role in their educational experience. You’ll discover who you are and how to utilize your strengths and overcome challenges to lead in new and unexpected ways. 

At KUA, you’ll find many ways to make a difference and get involved in the life of the Academy. Our leaders are embedded across campus - from our Fire Brigade members, to our student-athletes, to our Scholar students who see ways to transform the world around them.

We hear your voice, we let you lead, and if it looks a little messy at first, that’s OK too. Your leadership skills will help you develop people skills, build healthy relationships, and allow you to transform the work you do in high school, college, and beyond.
