Take Command of the Future
“His grades were night and day improvement. He said he felt like it was easier to make friends (at MMA). His self-confidence has improved, and he is a happier child. Landon takes initiative in his own life. We have a conversation about a potentially bad grade and he just takes it upon himself to get a teacher, figure out tutoring and do what he needs to do to get that grade up.” — Jennifer Kjohlede, MMA Mom
See For Yourself
We strongly encourage all families to schedule a private appointment, which includes a personal campus tour, parent consultation, student interview and more. You can also visit our campus for an open house event, where you can speak with Academy leadership, admissions counselors and faculty, or speak with an admissions counselor in your area.
MMA is currently enrolling for the spring 2022-23 academic year and 2023 summer camps.
Upon receipt of your inquiry or application, a member of our admissions team will be in contact the same day or immediately following the weekend. If you prefer to schedule a phone appointment, feel free to send us an email with the best day and time to reach you.
