KCA PHILOSOPHY

The purpose of our philosophy is to help students, faculty, parents, and board members reach for the ideals in life that the school strives to model. It is a creed, not only for the time we spend at school but also for the remainder of our lives.

We create a safe and caring community of co-learners in which:

 

  • the uniqueness and worth of each individual are unconditionally accepted and respected

  • diversity is celebrated

  • interreligious dialogue and understanding are encouraged

  • collegial and participatory decision-making is practiced

  • responsible freedom is expected

  • active, open communication is a way of life

We prepare learners for responsible participation in their society by encouraging:

  • critical thinking

​​

  • a broad world view

​​

  • an awareness of global interdependence

​​

  • a passion for social justice

​​

  • a commitment to be change agents in creating a new future for themselves and others

We provide a creative, flexible, and intellectually stimulating learning environment in which:

  • education is understood holistically

​​

  • students are encouraged to strive for excellence at their own pace

​​

  • students are challenged to discover and develop their fullest talents

​​

  • students are challenged and supported in their search for meaning

​​

  • motivation occurs cooperatively rather than competitively

​​

  • learning how to learn is as important as what one learns

​​

  • mutual evaluation is an ongoing and integral part of the learning process

​​

  • students experience a variety of teaching and learning styles

​​

  • the ground is laid for seeing all of life as an educational venture
