From Montgomery Bell Academy

Welcome to Montgomery Bell Academy! We are the only all boys school in Middle Tennessee, founded in 1867, and proud of our roots and foundations dating back to the 1780's. MBA's long history is intricately woven into a vision and mission of developing “Gentlemen, Scholars, Athletes,” and keeping current in our world. We relish the spirit of boys and work hard to ensure that a boy’s effort and excellence and character define him – not his last name or zip code.

We are committed to building boys into great young men and citizens who will make a difference in their communities. We hope they leave our school with confidence and competence, as well as the vision and empathy to be kind, humble, and thoughtful people. We are also grateful for the impact and influence they have in their communities. We are proud of the lifelong association and camaraderie that our boys develop. Please visit our campus and explore our website to learn more about the people and programs.
