Mount Pisgah Academy for me is actually a boarding school, but we do have village students. I attended the school for the last two years of highschool so my Junior and Senior year. We get to experience sports like volleyball, soccer and basketball for girls. For guys soccer and basketball. The school also provides an acro team, a drama club, hand bells assemble, choir, and band. Our school this year was pretty small, but because of that we are all pretty much close everyone knows each other. Because its an Adventist school the food is vegeterian, but still very good. I was an RA this year so I had a leadership position. The school doesn't have prom but it substitute it with a banquet where we can dress up formally or according to what theme SA has chosen. The classes are small so you can get an interaction with the teachers and the students. We have dorms so you have many sisters or brothers among you. Mount Pisgah Academy may be small this year but it has heart.

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.
