Kinkaid's mission is to promote educational excellence, personal responsibility, and balanced growth, and thereby to help its students to discover and develop their talents and to fulfill their best potentials.
From its earliest days Kinkaid has emphasized both academic attainment and character development.
Kinkaid remains faithful to its founder’s calling, valuing its students for their potential, as well as their achievement, and striving always for their balanced growth — intellectual, physical, social, and ethical.
The primary goals of Kinkaid are intellectual endeavor and achievement.
The school also believes that a well-rounded education includes experiences in the arts, athletics, and a variety of extra-curricular activities.
Kinkaid further believes that every student is and will continue to be part of a community and, therefore, seeks to strengthen his or her moral responsibility to it.
The school actively promotes honor, respect, responsibility, and kindness.
