Academics

Stepping Stones to the Future

The path from K3 through graduation is one of the most exciting journeys in a child’s lifetime—full of discovery, learning, development, and experiences.

MRA provides a compass of guidance, support and nurture along every step of this pathway with the goal of our children becoming the kind of students who can stand out in the classroom, serve in the community, and become leaders in this ever-evolving world.

We have an innovative, student-centered academic program geared to each child’s individual strengths and interests, and we have the small class sizes in which very type of learner can thrive. We walk hand in hand with our students as we prepare them for lives of knowledge, purpose, and character, and we are honored to be a part of the journey.
