From Maur Hill - Mount Academy

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 unique MHMA class schedule teaches students time management skills and how to advocate for themselves so that they can be better prepared for 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.
