Both of my children are attending Mile High Academy for the first time this year. I would like to address the experience of my 4th grade son, who wasn't doing well in public school. Even though he was on a 504 plan and an IEP, he couldn't keep up!It wasn't the public school teachers fault. There are just too many kids in public schools for teachers to help a child one on one.After testing, I was advised to enroll him in a school called the Havern School in Littleton, for children with dysgraphia and ADHD, etc. Because my son has always had a genuine love for the Lord, he's begged me for a few years to let him go to MHA. Even though I knew I couldn't afford it, I talked to our Pastor at Littleton SDA Church, who reassured me, if my kids wanted to go, the church would help me! So I decided to send both kids to MHA. I wanted to try everything I could, before I enrolled my son at The Havern School.It's been the best decision I've ever made regarding his education! I'm thrilled I was able to get him in on short noticei I cannot say enough about this school.My son is not only excited about going to school each morning, but he's excited about learning! I am more than thrilled with Mile High Academy! My son is thriving in ways I never thought he would, or believed he could.With the help of Mrs. Little, Mrs. Cress, & Mrs, Reeder, he has become more confident, independent and outgoing! He now does most of his assignments independently, and his spelling has become incredible! He loves reading and Lang Arts, and is learning and liking the math he should have leaned last year! He's quickly catching up!!!Without this school, or these 3 teachers, I don't know where my son would have ended up. I know if he would have been left in public school, he would have eventually given up and probably dropped out! While I was driving the other day, he asked me if he'll be able to go to MHA until he graduates high school. I told him I'll do everything in my power to make that happen!I believe, even in 4th grade, he feels the difference between MHA & the public schools. There are just too many kids in the public school system, for the teachers to help a child independently. How many teachers will use their own independent time, or the recess time, to calmly and lovingly help a child understand their classroom work & keep them caught up!My son gets this help at MHA, but he never did in public school. Instead, he would beg me to let him stay home on a daily basis. These days, at Mile High Academy, he's gets up early each morning, excited & eager to get to school.No-one knows how rewarding that is, unless you've been there! He used to cry each morning. Now he's eager and happy!I apologize about the length of this review, but I feel SO positive about this school, and the wonderful, good loving team of teachers who work with our kids and GENUINELY care!

I have two children in the Lower School. I love that they get great academics, along with music, athletics, real world learning. At MHA, they get a well-rounded preparatory education that will lead to success. Plus, I know they are also getting a Christian education.

My daughters have had a great experience attending the high school. Teachers are top-notch and the everyone's faith perspective is appreciated. My oldest daughter graduate last year and got into the college of her choice. Her ACT score was 30 and several of her classmates scored higher. And the camaraderie among her class was awesome.
