Parents' View

Below, find links to views from parents about what the MMA experience has been like for their sons.
"Choosing MMA's summer camp has been the best decision we have ever made for our son. Last summer, we wanted Michael to gain some life skills through a camp away from home. Before MMA, he didn't push himself and did well enough in public school to satisfy us, but he was in the 80 percent of kids that get pushed through but are not challenged .... Michael needed to be challenged physically and academically, and MMA has done that." Read full story and watch video.

"It was November of my son's sophomore year in high school, and I was experiencing another round of frustration as he wasn't reaching his potential. Because Ben is bright and curious, it was painful to see him not fighting for his future and dreams ... I had fleetingly considered boarding schools ... but I couldn't bear the thought of not having him live at home. I also wondered if it made me a bad parent to send him away to school.

But I also felt an urgency not to lose time. I felt I should trust my instincts to do what might be needed to help him mature into the man I knew Ben could and wanted to be ...

MMA has given him the ability to think about his choices and to take responsibility for them. He has learned that his is in charge of his freedom, privileges, and future. Last night on the phone he said, 'I know I don't tell you enough, but I am very grateful for the opportunity you have given me to be able to go to MMA.'" Click here to read more from this mom's letter.
