From Our Head of School

Thank you for taking the time to join us here online. I hope that as you venture through our website, you will catch a glimpse of what life is really like on the campus of Maur Hill - Mount Academy, stirring a desire in you to visit us in person. I say that because it is difficult to capture the true spirit that is present here on campus and translate it to a website. Life at MH - MA truly is exceptional.

The spirit that is alive at MH - MA is one that goes back to Maur Hill Prep, founded by Benedictine monks in 1919, and Mount St. Scholastica Academy, founded by Benedictine sisters in 1863. Today’s Maur Hill - Mount Academy is a Catholic Prep boarding school that is rooted in the Benedictine tradition. It has produced numerous alumni who have become extremely successful in just about every walk of life. Our alumni include CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, doctors, lawyers, priests, TV producers, teachers, coaches, and more. Many alumni will reference the discipline, work ethic, academic rigor, 信仰, and community they experienced here at MH - MA as a primary reason for their success.

What is it about Maur Hill - Mount Academy that draws so many top students to our campus and now has us ranked as one of the top Catholic boarding schools year after year? It is the unique combination of the Catholic 信仰, the international flavor, and the focus on preparing students for future success that makes the difference. Many students who enroll in college want to get international experience so they are more prepared for today’s workplace. Why wait until college? Here at MH - MA, we provide a daily experience of different cultures within our classrooms and campus life. Every year, our student body is made up of students from 16 to 20 different countries as well as several states. They learn each other’s cultures and differences yet still find common ground for lifelong friendships. Combine this experience with a rigorous academic program that includes a possible 29 hours of college credit by their senior year, and it is easy to see why our graduates excel in college and beyond. They are being prepared and given the tools to succeed in an ever-changing world.

I encourage you to look through this website and contact us. I am confident that you will find that an education at Maur Hill - Mount Academy is a great investment. Having your child join us for a college-prep education will be something that pays dividends to your family for a lifetime. Once they experience the daily demands at MH - MA, you will understand that an education here is on a different level—a level that will bring success in the future. I hope you will contact us soon.

God bless,

David Trotter
