We believe that MKA must foster among all community members a sense of responsibility for environmental sustainability. We must inspire resource conservation, preservation, and regeneration to help ensure the long term viability of humanity and address environmental and related social justice issues to promote health and quality of life for all.
Fundamental to our mission to provide students with a transformative education and inspire them to lead lives of noble character, purpose, and distinction, MKA must ensure that students gain the knowledge, vision, and integrity to develop habits that enable them to make responsible stewardship decisions and contribute to a more sustainable and just world. MKA must model clear sustainability principles and practices through all dimensions of school life and school operations, most specifically our physical place, organizational culture, and educational program. As we strive to achieve these sustainability ideals and to serve as a model for other schools and communities, we will hold ourselves accountable for acting consistently with the values articulated herein.
To recognize our responsibility as citizens, to cultivate intellectual independence, and to promote personal engagement with the world, as MKA’s mission states, MKA has made the below environmental sustainability commitments.
