  • What would life be like without adventure  The most exciting stories told are packed with epic experiences.  So what about your story
  • Would you like to DISCOVER adventure and purpose in your life  To be in an environment where the wilds of nature are part of your extended classroom  To DEVELOP a relationship with the Creator of adventure and give Him your life  To pursue academic excellence and SERVE in His Kingdom
  • If you desire to have these as a part of your story, I want to personally invite you to join our family.  My own story is filled with adventure, and it all started right here at Mount Ellis Academy.  I want that same opportunity for you.  I look forward to helping you make MEA a part of your life's story, filled with adventure.
