Life is Packed with adventure. Shouldn’t education be, too?

At Mount Ellis Academy, our students discover, develop, and serve. We learn, laugh, play, collaborate, pray, spend time in nature, and form unbreakable bonds.

We’ve been teaching students in grades 9-12 since 1902, so we’ve got a lot of history and experience inside and outside of the classroom. Mount Ellis Academy is a Christian school that welcomes students of all faiths and all backgrounds. We’re a diverse bunch, and we’re proud of our similarities and our differences.

Welcome to Mount Ellis Academy. You’ll like it here.
