Private Boarding School
Maur Hill-Mount Academy (MH-MA) is a Catholic, co-ed, college prep high school developed to model a college campus environment. It is located in a safe community, while
having the benefits of a larger metropolitan city nearby for weekend trips. With a tradition in education since its founding in 1863, MH-MA has welcomed international students and supported their academic growth and mastery of English in preparation for their future success. MH-MA enrolls 200 students from the US and around the world who represent a variety of cultures and religions.
The academic buildings, dormitories, dining hall, and athletic facilities are centrally located on a spacious 90 acre campus. All facilities are modern and climate controlled with Wi-Fi throughout. Recent campus projects have included a renovated science wing, new dorm room furniture, improved athletic facilities including a new workout/exercise center, a green house, and a renovated auditorium.
Sports and Arts
All sports and arts offerings are deemed necessary parts of a student’s education, as well as an important piece of the students resume for college. With over 30 arts/sports/ clubs opportunities, students have the best chance to become an influential part of the MH-MA community.
Dormitories and Student Life
