Imagine a Better Tomorrow
What does my future hold?
How do we do it?
Taking charge of the agenda: The Conference on Democracy, a one- to two-day seminar-style event, explores perspectives on current social, environmental, and economic issues. Students invite subject-matter experts and parents to participate alongside them. Recent conferences examined water usage in the context of the California drought and debated the merits of fracking. Throughout, students sharpen their understanding of what’s possible when you take on the “big issues.”
Students get personal: MA seniors have the chance to reflect on their time at MA in a senior speech shared with the entire student body. Every speech ends with specific appreciation for the teachers and students that have shaped that senior’s experience. And a few tears often are shed as students consider what their time at MA has meant in their journey to becoming compassionate citizens of our world.
