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.

Hear From the Community

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!
