MKA will provide our students with a transformational education within a strong, vibrant, and innovative school community. We will guide our students as individuals and learners on their journey to becoming ethical beings, critical thinkers, honorable leaders, and responsible citizens. We will create the best possible learning and teaching environment for students and faculty across a well-integrated three-campus facility. We will advance our commitment to diversity and inclusivity through our curriculum and programming, and we will both broaden and deepen our dedication to environmental sustainability.
MKA will transform the lives of our students by providing a program that: focuses on growth-minded development of the whole person; develops students’ curiosity, creativity, discovery, innovation, and ability to analyze and inquire; enhances students’ understanding of varied and multicultural perspectives; and encourages students to use their education to positively engage with the world.
A One-School Community
MKA will further integrate and connect each of our distinct and age appropriate campuses and the school in ways that are inclusive, creative, and practical. We will deepen our relationships with each other by fostering a diverse and inclusive school in which we understand and engage with our varied backgrounds and cultural identities.
MKA seeks to be a preeminent school for professional educators where excellence in teaching is normative, where ongoing professional growth is expected and supported, and where educators are honored and respected for their daily contribution to the success of our students. By their commitment to their vocation, our educators shape the very nature of the educational experience at MKA and further distinguish the school’s reputation.
MKA will cultivate a distinctly outward looking relationship with our alumni and institutions with a relevant or educational mission such as universities, service organizations, medical centers and innovative enterprises in technology, research and business in order to provide our students with unique learning opportunities beyond the boundaries of the school and to offer a human benefit to those partner organizations.
The Teaching and Learning Environment
MKA will ensure that our teaching and learning environments are attractive, flexible in purpose and conducive to teaching and learning and that they meet the aesthetic, physical, creative and technological goals of our programs and the needs of our students.
Financial Growth and Sustainability
MKA will develop and implement proposals that strengthen sources of non-tuition revenue such as annual giving, endowment, grants and auxiliary operations in order to provide a transformative education to our students, robust and meaningful professional development opportunities for our faculty and to fulfill all of our aspirations included in the Strategic Plan which require the growth of MKA’s financial resources.
