Mission & Core Values
Our mission is to promote educational excellence and balanced growth in a challenging, safe, and inclusive learning environment for the benefit of intellectually capable children of a sound character whose talents, interests, and uniqueness will be encouraged and nurtured to prepare them to lead, serve, and become contributing citizens to Kinkaid, our country, and the global community.
From its earliest days, Kinkaid has emphasized both academic excellence and character development.Founder Margaret Kinkaid described her ideal student as “the intellectually capable boy or girl of sound character whose talents, interests, and uniqueness are educational assets for other Kinkaid children.”Today’s Kinkaid values students for their potential as well as their achievement and emphasizes balanced growth – intellectual, physical, social, and ethical.
Kinkaid recognizes that the primary responsibility for instilling and strengthening values resides with parents. Nevertheless, a school can and should play an important role in character education. We have established four core values at the heart of our emphasis on character development.
