Madison-Ridgeland Academy cordially invites you to be part of our 26th annual community celebration, the Gardens of Madison County, which will be held May 1 – 3, 2020. This wonderful weekend will kick off Friday evening with a garden party at the Lost Rabbit Town Center followed by two days of tours featuring spectacular outdoor spaces and gardens, demonstrations by local businesses and chefs, as well as a garden market and café. Proceeds from the Gardens of Madison County will support Madison-Ridgeland Academy’s mission of “Educating the Mind, Body, and Spirit” of each child through the continued expansion of academic programs, increased investment in faculty and staff development, enhancement of campus facilities, and upgraded technology school-wide. We are very proud to have been able to continue to build upon the strong foundation of excellence that has established Madison-Ridgeland Academy as a leader in independent education in our area. We consider it a great privilege to be able to provide an outstanding college preparatory education with a Christian foundation.

We would like to invite and encourage each MRA family to participate in our annual school fundraiser, “The Gardens of Madison County.” This is the school's primary fundraiser that not only allows the school to raise funds needed to keep tuition affordable, but also provides MRA with positive publicity in our community. The event is scheduled to start on April 29, 2016, with the annual Garden Party, followed by the Garden Tour on April 30-May 1, 2016. We need the support of all MRA patrons with this event as it continues to grow each year. Please take a moment to look over the many committees that are offered and sign up to help with this wonderful event. Remember it takes all of us to make it happen, and we need your help!!
