When I was a student, I absolutely loved my time at Mount Pisgah Academy. The teachers took time to work with students who were struggling, the deans were always there for me when I was homesick, and the activities on campus made it so much more fun! I made life-long friends at MPA and am a proud alumnus.

I've spent my four years of high school at Mount Pisgah Academy and also graduated from there. My overall experience at that school is honestly indescribable, there's literally no words that can describe it except family. My first year at Mount Pisgah Academy was nerve wracking for me, I've never left home and being at a dormitory private school was a huge change for me especially coming from a public school and not knowing anybody. But the people there were so kind and friendly to me; the staff there are the best. I would recommend Mount Pisgah Academy to anyone who is looking for a joyous, spiritual, Christian education and a big family because that's what you receive at Mount Pisgah Academy.
I have 2 sons that attended MPA, they graduated 2014 and 2015. They had a great experience at this christian boarding school. The teachers and staff take care of the students like members of their family. A good number of teachers and staff lives in campus, and the dorms has a good safety system. The school is located on the mountains with easy access from I-40. I recommend this school to your son or daugther.
