The first step in the Strategic Planning Process was to form a committee of stakeholders to review the mission of the school. The goal of this team was to create a statement that reflected the same core mission of TKA’s Founders but would be more concise, easier to remember, and thus, more readily applied as a litmus test for decisions.

While reviewing the mission, the team also created the core values which are foundational to the mission, a statement explaining who we are as a school, and the vision for our graduates. The wording reflected above was finalized after receiving input from the entire TKA staff.
