Mountain View Academy Photo #1 - Cheerful students from the graduating class of 2017.
  • At Mountain View Academy, our mission is to provide a quality education to a culturally diverse student body in a Christian environment.
  • An education is only as valuable as the efforts that go into teaching and learning.
  • Mountain View Academy believes that an education should be centered in the Source that created the opportunity to educate and learn.
  • Therefore science cannot be learned without its Origin, law without a standard, language without love, humanity without its Heavenly Father, and the arts without The Creator.
  • We believe the best teacher is God, through His example, Jesus Christ.
  • Mountain View Academy places itself as an active medium for education: mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually inspired by the Word of God.
  • "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and Men.".
