Kimball Union Academy Meriden, NH

Kimball Union Academy is an ideal environment for learning set on 1,300 spectacular acres. Nestled among New England’s best ski mountains, we say, “opting out is not an option.” Our students are engaged citizens of the world supported by a world-class faculty, and enriched by a rigorous college preparatory program built on a cutting-edge curriculum. Immersed in a diverse, globally centered environment just 15 minutes from Dartmouth College, Kimball Union students are exposed to the world through experiential learning opportunities and study abroad programs. Connecting real world experiences with an advanced curriculum, Kimball Union Academy equips students with the skills necessary for success in college and beyond. This past December, we bid “güte reise,” or “safe travels” in German, to members of Kimball Union’s ski team, as they traveled to Hintertux, Austria for 4 weeks. Training with Olympians on the glacier, while maintaining their academic course load with the help of Kimball Union faculty, our skiers learned the importance of balance, commitment, and dedication. Kimball Union’s innovative technology-driven academic program enabled them to stay on track with their studies – even on the slopes shoulder to shoulder with World Cup skiers. On campus, students are engrossed in a wide variety of unique programs, including hydroponic vegetable production for consumption in our dining hall, even in mid-winter. Equipped with state-of-the-art Tower Gardens, students are increasing efficiencies in the greenhouse, and learning about sustainable practices. Our extensive science curriculum provides the academic foundation to launch students’ exploration of all the scientific disciplines. From athletic pursuits to scientific discovery, and an academic program rivaling any in the country, come discover the best environment for learning.
