As the school's motto suggests, the curriculum challenges students beyond borders and beyond barriers. Unique learning opportunities are infused into the school day and beyond the campus including business internships, after school academic-based clubs, the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) elective, and the prestigious dual enrollment program with Mesa Community College. In the class of 2010, 100% of Kearny International Business seniors completed one transferable college class prior to high school graduation.
