The Admissions Journey
Take the first step in the admissions process. Once we receive your Inquiry Form, we’ll connect for a virtual engagement so we can learn more about your family’s educational needs and philosophies.
Once you’ve submitted an inquiry, our team will connect with you to schedule a Virtual Tour of our campuses and engage via video conference with an admissions advisor to explore Mountain Academy’s mission, educational foundations, and campuses from the comfort of your home. Our goal is to help families mutually decide if Mountain Academy is a natural fit for your student and family.
Look out for upcoming Virtual Open Houses and other engagement events to help connect you with the Mountain Academy community.
Let us help your family make a Mountain Academy education possible!
The Flexible Tuition Program is designed to help families remove financial barriers to entry and pave a way forward towards an unmatched educational experience.
As a community, all families contribute toward the cost of a Mountain Academy education. While it is our belief that each family must place a top financial priority on their student’s education, we offer a Flexible Tuition program so that you can benefit from a “flexed” tuition model based on your family’s financial capabilities.
You’re almost there! A student’s application provides the admissions committee a holistic look at each individual applicant – from their interests, learning styles to personalities. The Mountain Academy community thrives when it welcomes and nurtures families that will support and fully embrace the school’s mission and values. Through the application process, our hope is to help identify students who are best suited for our program and whose families will contribute as global citizens in our community.
As part of your application, we will schedule a Family Interview – an opportunity for your family to have a conversation with members of the admissions committee include faculty. Currently, these sessions are virtual.
Families can also choose an optional Virtual Classroom Visit to meet current students and faculty.
