Montverde Academy

Private Boarding School – Montverde , Florida

Founded in 1912, Montverde Academy is a college preparatory, coeducational independent school for grades 7 to 12. The school is situated at a gorgeous 125 acres campus bordering Lake Florence in central Florida.

The faculty are equipped to provide an unparalleled education with numerous opportunities for honors and advanced placement level work. Small class sizes serve as a catalyst for a close knit community where personal relationships serve as a valuable resource in advancing the learning process.

Recognizing that technology serves an important role in the future of our students, Montverde Academy has a fully networked campus via a fiber optic infrastructure. Opportunities outside the classroom are equally as important in the educational process, and Montverde Academy is pleased to offer a full complement of athletic and fine arts opportunities. The ultimate investment in an independent school education is to gain admission to the most competitive colleges and universities throughout the country and the world. Our school continues to achieve great success in college placement as evidenced by our 100% college matriculation rate, 85% to their first choice.
