From the Director of Admissions and Financial Aid

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. Is MKA that place? We encourage you to explore and ask questions, just as our inquisitive students do.

MKA, too, is an adventure or, more accurately, 1,000 adventures—one for each individual. We are a school of thought, nourishing curiosity and turning inquiry into insight. We are an open community, as diverse as we are united. And we foster balance, so students gain the grounding and confidence to seize opportunities and realize their infinite potential.

We invite you to discover if MKA holds the right adventure for you.

Sincerely,

Alyson Waldman ‘99

Director of Admissions and Financial Aid

   

Hear From the Community

While the 2019-2020 school year didn't end as anyone could have expected, we are sure we made the right decision to choose MKA for both of our children.

Middle and Upper School Parent

Teachers have been incredibly responsive, providing useful and encouraging feedback. They are also quick to respond to any questions/problems we as a family might have and to come up with creative solutions.

On Remote Learning, Primary School Parent 

Pre-K teachers are doing an amazing job of designing creative, engaging lessons for the kids and keeping everyone connected.

On Remote Learning, Primary School Parent

Having a check-in with every teacher has resulted in more structure and has helped her establish a more regular routine. Also, she appreciates the live contact with the teachers.

On Remote Learning, Middle School Parent

The quantity of remote instruction has been fabulous. 

On Remote Learning, Upper School Parent

The day’s go by much quicker than my old school and learning is fun at MKA.

Fourth Grade Student 

Words really can’t describe how happy we are with our son's and our experience with Montclair Kimberly Academy. The staff – administration – coaches – teachers – advisors – all amazing.  Beyond competent.  It’s truly a special place. 

Upper School Parent

The thoughtfulness and professionalism of the faculty, staff, and administrators has consistently impressed us and has further proved to us that our decision to send our daughter to MKA was the right one! She has had a great year, and has developed some terrific friends, engaged with her teachers, and played on two terrific teams. All good things!

Upper School Parent

It has certainly been a wonderful and memorable year. Throughout the year, we have been so happy with the school, the teachers and administrators, and the MKA families. We are looking forward to watching our child grow and thrive at MKA. We couldn’t be happier with the school. MKA is a welcoming and wonderful place!

Primary School Parent

I am extremely impressed by MKA’s diversity... The school has delivered on that beyond our expectations. We are so delighted to be part of the community. 

Middle and Upper School Parent 

I’m so happy I chose MKA. Thank you to my friends for making this the best school year of my life.

MKA is truly a special place and we are thankful to be part of it. I look forward to the many incredible days ahead!

Our daughter had a fantastic year at MKA! Everything exceeded our expectations. It’s hard to believe she will soon be a sophomore… we are all looking forward to the next few years, and we are excited for what she will accomplish!

Upper School Parent

My daughter has had a wonderful experience. I’m so glad we sent her to MKA because her teachers have really seen and appreciated her.
