School Notes

  • At the core of every academic institution is the pursuit of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. They are, in fact, a progression in the growth experience. It is one thing to have knowledge and understanding; applying it in a way that benefits family, society, and God's kingdom requires wisdom. We hope to create a life-changing experience for our students and broader school community. We want to offer activities to allow the heart, soul, and body to flourish.
  • Our test scores reflect our commitment to academic accomplishment with college-bound students averaging 25.1 on the ACT (five-year average). Music, athletic teams, and the visual arts provide platforms for young men and women to experience camaraderie, learn teamwork, and express their various talents.
  • Our deepest desire is to partner with outstanding families to prepare young men and women to impact our world by loving mercy, seeking justice, and walking humbly with our God. I invite you to discover the rewards of a Madison Academy education.
