Maur Hill - Mount Academy is a Catholic, boarding and day, college prep high school located in Atchison, Kansas. Founded in 1863 by Benedictine sisters and monks, MHMA educates young men and women with our mission rooted in every aspect of the school: Live the Faith. Pursue the Truth. Strive for Excellence.
Boarding has been a main part of our history, we have students from all around the U.S. and world. Our alumni will tell you how inviting the campus community feels, the kindness of our staff and faculty, and the many opportunities provided.
In the classroom our students are challenged by our engaging faculty. Small classes allow for personal attention. Our flex-mod class schedule teaches students time management skills and how to advocate for themselves so that they can be better prepared for college/university.
We want students to become the man or woman that God created them to be. We want their very best in classes, amongst their peers, on the field, and in our community.

College on Training Wheels
With a college prep curriculum we challenge our students every day, with our "Flex-Mod Schedule" or college on training wheels we can take this step even further. The Flex-Mod schedule allows more time for academic support, teaches time management skills, and increases student participation in extracurricular activities. All while still completing advanced courses to move onto the next level.

Maur Hill - Mount Academy Reviews
High School brings a lot of challenges, and I had a great community to journey through those four years with. Many of the teachers I had were very dedicated to their students and guiding them towards success - always available if you needed extra help. Attending a school with students from around the world allowed me to learn about several other cultures and find some lifelong friends! The Catholic faith is definitely alive and a core value for this school which was very important for me.
Having graduated, (and now as a working adult) I constantly find myself applying the values and work ethic I learned from attending Maur Hill - Mount Academy.
