Creative expression is central to the developing mind. At Kimberton, we view opportunities to engage in artistic activities as essential to nurturing creative thinking. But we aren’t an art school. Our focus is on fostering creative, flexible thinking.
Our teachers carefully align creative developmental activities with emerging cognitive, emotional, and physical stages of growth. Art, music, handwork, sculpting, woodwork, movement arts, and blacksmithing are intrinsically interwoven with chemistry, physics, mathematics, botany, literature, and history.
We integrate art and academics in a methodology that gives richness to both. We develop analytical thinkers with imaginative minds capable of producing prolific, life-changing ideas. These are the young people who will define the world of tomorrow. And they will do so by redefining everyone’s conception of intelligence, acumen, and originality.
