Blue Mountain Academy was my first choice of private academies. As a 1979 graduate who went on to achieve great success first as a highly decorated U.S. Naval Officer, having served in numerous countries, staffs including the Pentagon. Later, accomplished business owner and entrepreneur in 3 States. I credit the education I received at Blue Mountain as integral to my leadership abilities and success. If I were to have children they would attend Blue Mountain Academy.
