I am more than impressed with the curriculum and the teachers. I love the mix of independent study and regular school days. My daughter who is 9 is already learning chemistry and loving it! We are able to have a lot of 1 on 1 time for projects, essays, and lessons. Huge difference from traditional school. The classes are small and the teachers are easy always available for questions. I wish I had started MVA sooner.

I've been at Mountain Valley Academy for three years now in their high school. Every one of the students is extremely nice, talented, and ready to work. The teachers and other amazing staff help foster an environment that encourages everyone, especially those struggling with anxiety. The school has an amazing creative program, as well as access to college courses. The college style organization of the school prepares students for graduation, higher education, and the real world.
I love how because there’s not hundreds of kids that attend this high school, it’s possible to have personal relationships with teachers, which causes for better grades!
