Student Life

In tandem with a rich academic program, MKA provides a wide variety of student opportunities outside the classroom setting. Knowing that students achieve more with balance and joy in their lives, MKA concentrates on students’ social and emotional spheres as much as their intellectual ones. Students are encouraged to participate enthusiastically in activities that prepare them to seize opportunities, realize unlimited potential, and mature into well-balanced individuals. In a supportive and collaborative environment, these opportunities generate school spirit, encourage students to explore and express who they are, find success individually defined, and encourage responsibility for the greater community, as diverse as it is united.
