KCA is committed to educating students in an environment that recognizes the power of treating others as one would treat him or herself. Each member of the student body experiences how acting from a place of sharing supports achieving their personal goals. This understanding instills a consciousness that allows each child to act proactively, to set aside their reactive nature, and to expand their sense of partnership with their peers and environment. This consciousness of being interconnected with a larger whole is known as spiritual intelligence. Spiritual intelligence is key to being a true leader in ones life.
"Behavior is born of consciousness." - Rav Philip Berg, Co-founder, Kabbalah Childrens Academy
At its heart, spirituality is about creating a sense of connectedness within an individual and between a person and his/her world - a necessary ingredient of our survival on both a personal and planetary level. It is a looking inward to fulfill our potential to achieve happiness, love, joy - all the things we really want out of life. It is a looking outward to foster positive connections with other individuals and with the greater community. It helps us to foresee the consequences of our actions and their impact on others and ourselves. Spirituality is concerned with matters of the spirit - an awareness of something greater than oneself, something that goes beyond our five physical senses (sight, smell, touch, taste, and sight). It is spirit that informs our perception of life, an understanding.
