The Montgomery Academy has the reputation for being the most academically challenging of the private schools in our area. All four of my children received their education at MA and we couldn't be more pleased. The teachers, administration, and staff provide a nurturing environment for our students and provide them with the academic tools they will need to succeed. They also encourage each student to stretch themselves and explore new areas of interest. Students have said to me that "it is cool to try everything." Football players sing in the chorus, huge numbers of students participate in the wonderful plays put on by the theater department, AP Scholars participate in student government. There is so much student cross over between athletics, the arts and academics. Students are free to explore potential interests and the school offers strong programs in all of these areas. My family could not be happier with our MA experience and feel like the MA community is our MA family.

My wife and I love The Montgomery Academy. Excellent headmaster and directors. The faculty is the best you will find anywhere. We have four kids who love attending school here. Their fellow students are nice kids who are at MA to learn. The parents are all about the kids getting the best education possible. The athletic and other non-scholastic programs are the best also. Highly recommend MA.
