Return on Investment

MRA seniors receive the top scholarships to many prestigious universities across the country. Not only do these scholarship offers attest to the strong academics at MRA, but they also show how we prepare students for the competitive college application process by building well-rounded resumes. MRA is a sound investment in your child's future.

A Personal Approach

While we are one of the largest independent schools in the state, our class sizes are small enough to provide a personal approach benefiting every learning style and every personality. Our children are known, loved, nurtured, and challenged to succeed, and they invariably rise to that challenge. Our family atmosphere is something we all value, and we will continue to make that a priority as we strategically plan for future growth.

Take the Patriot Path

We invite you to visit our school, walk the halls, go into classrooms, and meet with students, faculty, and administrators. MRA is driven by our mission statement: to educate the mind, body, and spirit and a tour is a great way to see how this mission is exemplified daily in our school life. We welcome the opportunity to tell you our story and hope that you will join many others in becoming a part of the MRA family.

Why choose MRA

Quote 4
I've seen firsthand that MRA is a school that passionately pursues both academic and athletic excellence. My children are 3rd generation students on this campus for a reason. The teachers, coaches, and administrators continue to challenge students and instill personal integrity through Christian values. I believe this will give them the tools they need to become contributing members of our community in the future. - Seth Hedglin, MRA Alumni and Parent
Quote 1
From kindergarten to my senior year, my MRA family has given me a positive environment and countless opportunities to grow academically and athletically. In the classroom and on the field we are continually challenged to do our very best. Through chapel, community service, Student Leadership Institute, and Bible classes, we are given the knowledge and experience to become stronger in our faith. I will always be grateful to be an MRA Patriot.- Aubree Dillon, Student Body President
Quote 2
From our first encounter during the admissions meeting to getting us through the enrollment process and making sure that our child was comfortable and prepared for his first day of school, all of MRA's staff encouraged us and welcomed our family with open arms. The MRA administrative team, teachers, support staff, and all of the families we have gotten to know over the past year have been tremendous. Our son had an incredible sixth grade year and has never been happier attending school. We are really looking forward to Kyle's next six years at MRA and only wish that we had moved him to MRA sooner. Thank you to everyone at MRA and to all of the wonderful families we have gotten to know. Your concern, prayers, and unending support towards Kyle and to us as parents as we all transitioned to a new school and throughout the past year has been priceless.- Susie Kinkade, Parent
