Maur Hill Mount Academy

Private Boarding School – Atchison , Kansas

Maur Hill-Mount Academy (MH-MA) is a private boarding school founded over 150 years ago that provides a respected education to students from across the United States and internationally. As a Catholic school, students will experience a challenging and supportive atmosphere with a safe and structured boarding program. As a college prep school, Maur Hill-Mount Academy sees 98% of graduates entering college. International students have available ESL courses, Summer ESL course, College courses, AP courses, SAT and TOEFL prep courses, along with all of the different clubs and sports teams at the school. A key program is the school’s “House System” that welcomes and involves all students into the school community and provides each student with a teacher adviser.

MH-MA students come to us from all over the world. During their time here, they are learning how to integrate into a world that continues to get smaller, learning how to adapt to – and respect – other cultures and personalities. When our students leave us, they are well-suited to thrive in – and influence – our changing world.

Recognizing that success is defined by more than a grade-point-average, our students are exposed to learning as a life long commitment. As a college preparatory school, our dynamic learning environment, dept hand quality of curriculum and affiliation with a nationally – recognized liberal arts college prepare students for success at the next level.
