    Montverde Academy has a beautiful campus and wonderful facilities! There are excellent sports programs and a lot of school spirit. The fine arts/theater/music programs are amazing with excellent teachers. There are specialty conservatories for instrumental music, voice, as well as theater. There are many varied opportunities with clubs and different honor societies. I especially love the great cultural diversity among students and the programs that celebrate different customs. The school is very serious about college readiness and has multiple AP classes. The school helps prepare the students with testing preparation and the college application process. There is a college-readiness counselor assigned to each student. Volunteer hours are required for each student to graduate.

    Although Montverde Academy's academics are impressive with IVY League college placement every year, what strikes me is how well-rounded the students are. Theatre and music conservatory students win many accolades and awards each school year. The athletic program has to be the best in the United States, not just for one sport, mind you, but for being so talented in many, many sports. Overall, approximately 50 athletes are playing professionally with the likes of Franciso Lindor for the Cleveland Indians, Ben Simmons of the Philadelphia 76'ers, RJ Barrett for the New York Knicks and Andre Shinyashaki, Rookie of the Year in Major League Soccer. All are Montverde Academy graduates. Girls soccer was number one in the United States last year, Boys Tennis won a national championship two years ago, baseball was number 2 in the United States 2 years ago, the best boys soccer team plays men's national teams and the boys basketball team has won 5 out of the last 8 national championships. A+!
    Montverde Academy is our home away from home. When we began our educational journey there 7 years ago, our children were in the Lower School and I knew the academics were among the best. However, I had to be sure the campus was safe and the teachers and staff were nurturing. This is my favorite part of our school. We are a close knit community that takes care of each other and our children are learning the importance of a strong commitment to community. As our children grew, our needs evolved and we wanted to be sure Montverde was offering top notch extracurriculars. We have amenities that are second to none. We’ve been a part of beach and indoor volleyball, the swim program, the community music program, lacrosse, soccer and theatre. My children are extremely well rounded and I thank our amazing school teachers and faculty for that!
