Summer Academy

June 21 — July 17, 2020

Applicable Grades: 7-12. Residential experience for boys; day camp available for girls.


MMA’s Summer Academy has two tracks – the Middle School Program (grades 7-8) and the High School Program (grades 9-12) – each designed to simultaneously challenge students academically and physically so they may hone their academic abilities and learn good studying practices while building their confidence by expanding on their range of life experiences.

Middle School Program 

This integrated approach to education covers key academic skills and knowledge in math, science, and reading. Students are taught using the best methods for middle school-aged students, engaging them in hands-on, interactive projects throughout the day. In the evening, a guided study hall is conducted under the supervision of a teacher who can also assist students with their work.

After class and on weekends, students are involved in fun activities that challenge their abilities. Some activities* include: 

  • Soccer
  • Horseback Riding
  • Swimming
  • Field Trips
  • Paintball
  • Basketball
  • Physical Fitness
  • Flag Football
  • Tennis

High School Program 

Designed specifically for high school students wishing to makeup a course or take an enrichment course in a certain subject. MMA’s for-credit academic camp allows students to earn up to two credits while simultaneously honing their subject knowledge and study skills. Courses are small and guided study halls take place nearly every evening, which enables teachers to work closely with each student, maximizing their educational experience. 

Afternoons and weekends offer opportunities for students to relax and participate in activities that reinforce their confidence and academic focus. MMA aims to create an environment where students build not only academic skills, but friendships and self-confidence as well.

Some evening and weekend activities* include: 

  • Horseback Riding
  • Swimming
  • Field Trips
  • Paintball
  • Basketball
  • SCUBA
  • Physical Fitness
  • Weight Training
  • Flag Football


Activities are subject to change.
