Because it has wonderful Christian teachers and a closeness between all the Christian students.

Not a good value! Will not send my child back next year. Educational standards are not on par with Public schools or other private schools such as King's Academy or any of the Catholic schools.

I really enjoyed going to mva. I thought it was the best thing to ever happen to me. I really blossomed and great there. I learned who I was and the atmosphere is absolutely great. Everyone is so friendly and open to give you a hug if it seems as though you need one. I definatley recommend mva to any high schooler.

I'll be honest. I work for Mountain View Academy as the Alumni Director, but I thought I'd take a moment to share some opinions many of our parents have to say about our school. We often hear the most from our graduating seniors and their parents, so I'll share those with you here. 1. One parent praised our teachers and our principal for the Christian way their son's discipline problem was handled. 2. Another parent sent a letter thanking our school for welcoming their daughter so warmly despite her coming to MVA in the middle of the year. This student had been to several other schools in the area and liked our school the best. These are just the comments parents make. Our students, no matter what ethnicity, religion, or background, are very friendly. What I'm most impressed is the personal involvement our teachers and staff have with the students. No matter who the student is, that students will be scholastically and emotionally encouraged to do well at this school by his or her teachers. That's how much the teachers care here. I think you'll appreciate me sharing this, but don't take my word for it, ask yourself.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
