Culture of Integrated Ethics

Turning questioning into personal understanding and global engagement

MKA students work to develop habits of inquiry and reflection as the building blocks of their own moral and intellectual character. They learn about themselves and how they can impact the world around them.

“How can we best develop the moral and intellectual habits of good character?”

MKA’s Culture of Integrated Ethics, rooted in the MKA Character Standards, brings together many different facets of MKA’s curriculum and school culture that simultaneously explore answers to this guiding question.

As students question, reflect, collaborate, and problem-solve, they are intentionally practicing the habits of good character and engaged in an authentic and relevant Culture of Integrated Ethics.
