A Commitment to Integrity + Inclusion
Guided by the motto, “Knowledge, Vision, Integrity,” the school encourages active participation in the arts, athletics, and community engagement to enhance the growth cultivated by a challenging academic curriculum.
According to the Head of School, Nigel Furlonge, “MKA is a school and a community that fosters the ethical development, intellectual growth, and personal success of its students.” A commitment that the staff take very seriously at every level.
The school consists of three age-appropriate campuses for grades Pre-K through 12. The Primary School includes Pre-K through 3rd grade; the Middle School consists of 4th to 8th grade, and the Upper School is for students in grades 9 to 12. A commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, in addition to faculty professional development, are hallmarks seen across each of the three campuses at Montclair Kimberley Academy.
“At MKA, we believe the school search can and should be an exciting adventure,” Alyson Waldman, Director of Admissions and Financial Aid, told The Montclair Girl, “Our goal is to help families find an environment that will inspire you and your child. Is MKA that place? We encourage you to explore and ask questions, just as our inquisitive students do.”
