“At MKA, we believe the school search can and should be an exciting adventure. Our goal is to help you find an environment that will inspire you and your child,” said Alyson Waldman, Director of Admissions and Financial Aid. “Is MKA that place? We encourage you to explore and ask questions, just as our inquisitive students do.”
Upcoming Information Sessions This Fall
This fall, Montclair Kimberley Academy is hosting several in-person and virtual information sessions for prospective families. These sessions, on each of the three campuses, will provide an opportunity for families to learn more about the school as a whole, the programs offered, and the community created at each campus. Each information session will include presentations from the new Head of School, Nigel Furlonge, and the chance to hear from current parents and faculty.
Upcoming in-person admissions events will have limited space due to COVID-19 health and safety guidelines. School administration encourages families to register for the event they would like to attend. If an event you would like to register for has reached capacity, the Admissions Team will happily place you on a waiting list. You can contact them via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
