MKA’s Advanced Curricular Opportunities Pilot (ACOP) connects Upper School students to further applications and explorations of their work at MKA and celebrates meaningful student endeavors that happen beyond our walls.
ACOP aims to help students figure out where and how they want to learn outside of MKA, and how they can bring the full scope of this learning to the work that they do at school. When successful, it is an additional tributary of learning that nourishes MKA’s robust curricular and extracurricular programs and dynamic classroom settings.
