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 the largest independent school in the state, our class sizes are small allowing us to provide a personal approach so that every learning style and every personality can flourish and thrive. 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.
