Established in 1902, Mount Ellis Academy (MEA) was founded as a Christian boarding high school for the youth of Montana. We are still located on the land donated to the school by the Rouse brothers all those years ago. For over 120 years, God’s Hand has never been far from this school.
In 1952, God provided direction for MEA by allowing us to acquire the Bear Canyon Ski Hill beginning MEA’s foray into enriched outdoor experiences for our students. This has grown into our Outdoor School program, Lifetime Activities, as well as a variety of other opportunities to get out to learn and explore God’s amazing creation that surrounds our Bozeman campus. Many times throughout our history, God’s hand has opened the floodgates of heaven to keep our ministry going in reaching His youth.
We are striving to create a sustainable future for MEA as we prepare for our next 120+ years of ministry. Our next big step forward is a long-term goal over the next 3-5 years of $4.5 Million to augment our “only at Mt. Ellis” activities, further develop our Trade Program offerings as well as develop new programs that enhance the learning experience at MEA, and to create a vibrant indoor and outdoor environment conducive to creativity and learning.
