    Kimball Union Academy prepares students for the challenges of tomorrows world by inspiring academic mastery, creativity, responsibility, and leadership. Our core community values are: respect for oneself and others, commitment to honesty, and concern for the environment.

    Kimball Union Academys commitment to excellence and innovation begins with active learning across the curriculum, intentionally designed, whether in the classroom, on the stage, on the field, in the houses, or through community service. We are passionately committed to learning herestudents as well as teachersday by day, year by year. When it comes to learning, there is no one answer or one path, just as there is no one way that KUA will make a difference in your life.

    At KUA our students define the school, as opposed to the school defining our students. We are not a school where you have to fit in to make a difference, or a school where you have to stand out to be counted. Our goal is to help you understand who you are, where you want to go, and challenge you to be even better at your chosen pursuits than you imagined possible.

    While we have a practical, country unpretentiousness at KUA that is very grounding, few schools in the country have made a deeper commitment to innovative educational practices and providing teachers and students with the technology to free them to learn in new ways.

    We are a hard-working, fun-loving school where everyone pitches in for the betterment of others. If you ask a KUA student or faculty member, most will say the close relationships we have with one another is the real gateway to learning and growth. The deep personal connections we make with one another here, and the strength of the community in this gorgeous setting, is part of The Hilltops lasting legacy.

    While words, pictures, and technology can give you a glimpse of the amazing learning environment here at KUA, there is truly only one way to understand what Kimball Union can do for you. We sincerely hope youll join us for a visit to our beautiful campus in Meriden, New Hampshire.
