Wonderful, helpful, caring, compassionate, and tolerant of others. Love the Christian environment as they truly care about helping their children succeed in every aspect of their lives!

We have been part of the MGA family for the past 5 years--next year my son will be in the second graduating class. It has been a blessing to us on many levels--LOVE that we can "homeschool", yet have the experience of allowing our son to learn how to deal with different personalities--both teachers and students. This is a "real world" experience, yet we are still able to foster the independence of working on school work at home--learning time management skills, study skills and personal responsibility for learning. His leadership abilities have grown and been nurtured through the student council at MGA--students are encouraged to be a part of the morning assembly in teaching and sharing from scripture and praying for the student body. They reach out to students in tangible ways and have learned about servant leadership, both inside and outside of school. Also love that we do have students with various disabilities--helps our children to develop compassion and care for others that are not all the same. We have watched MGA grow every year since we have been there--there is a reason for this!! Love the entire concept!!

Morning Glory Academy has a great concept, although I do not feel it is for our family. This was our first year to homeschool, and I was very disappointed. We have spent a lot of money and we the parents were doing most of the teaching. I came into it thinking we were a partnership. I didn't like it very much. I kind of felt like I was paying for child care not private school. Some of the classes in grammar school seem great but we were just not happy with the way the school was being ran. Homeschool has been a true blessing and we WILL continue, but a at a different school.

My son is in his second year as an upper school student. He has never been in public school, but it was time to let go of the reigns somewhat, so we decided MGA was a great choice. He has loved it from the get-go and is very pleased with the teachers and director. He is challenged at every level. As with any school, your child is going to get out of it what they give to it. If they are not willing to learn, the teacher cannot be blamed. We are still the parent/teacher and we are still the ones that ultimately teach our children. As for special needs children, mine is not one, however the choice to either take your child there, or not, is yours. Before you decide to enroll you will find the credentials of the teaching staff given, then you make the decision. If children struggle, then we as parents are in charge to help them figure it out. MGA definitely tries to get parents involved, so it is up to the parents to step up to the plate.

My daughter is in Level C (3rd grade) and she has blossomed at MGA this semester. We absolutely adore her teacher. She gives the right blend of structure and flexibility and really inspires my daughter to be passionate about whatever they are learning. My daughter has made some great friends and has greatly benefitted from the small class size and sweet children enrolled in her grade. MGA has been a great match for our family.

MGA has been such a huge blessing to my family this year!! The upper school staff and teachers are wonderful... their teaching skills with the students as well as their communication with parents is amazing. They truly care about and love my daughters and the class ratios are low enough for them to really get to know their students and have an impact on their lives. Is MGA perfect? Nope! Is any school perfect? Definitely not. MGA is not perfect, but it's a wonderful place! If you'd like a great balance of a school setting combined with teaching at home, try MGA. You and your children will be blessed. :)

As a parent completing our second year at MGA, I am very sad to see a few reviews that are far from the truth. My son is in A (1st grade) and has enjoyed every moment, even when his first teacher had to step away for her God given calling. My daughter is in Kinder and is having an amazing year with incredible teachers! When you are in a homeschool/school partnership as a parent or teacher you must have grace for situations that are out of all our control and understanding when seasons change for anyone at any given time. To address specifically the comment about adults running around untrained with guns. My husband and I are state certified and licensed to carry a concealed weapon. We train regularly, choose to use this as a means to protect those around us, and take this responsibility very seriously. This comment seems to be made to be hurtful, out of anger, and with a lack of knowledge to the real situation. It is our legal right to carry, even when we pick up our kiddos. We are very grateful to have a school like MGA to send our children to. MGA provides the flexibility, socialization and a caring environment we couldn't be happier with. So blessed to be a part of this school!

As as teacher at MGA and as a parent of students who attend MGA, I can say that we have had an excellent experience from both sides. The teachers are passionate about what they do and want the best for each and every student. Yes, there are some students with disabilities. That's because we believe that each child should have access to the education that is best for him or her, with the support/decision of their parents. We are not exclusive, nor afraid of having students with special needs in our classes. They are given the extra support they need, when they need it. The comment addressing that particular issue is not informed, nor is it another parent's business. MGA is a partnership between parents and the school to share in the educational goals of each child. MGA is not solely responsible for everything that needs to be taught or learned in any given year. I am so thankful that I have the flexibility to teach my children with the structure and support of MGA.

I really like the concept, but this school just seems unorganized. This is our second year to homeschool and our first year at MGA. The teachers are nice, but there are some inconsistencies. My child struggles a little and I do not feel that the teachers are trained. Their hearts are in the right place, but they just do not have the skills to work with students that are struggling learners. We won't be returning next year.

There seems to be lots of kids with disabilities. They don't provide formal training for teachers to take care of children with disabilities

As one of the Directors, I am dismayed to read two reviews posted yesterday that contain libelous untruths. Opinions are one thing, but asserting untrained adults are on site with guns is untrue. Asserting teachers are untrained is untrue. If you have ANY questions about other aspects of MGA, feel free stop by and assess for yourself and communicate with us directly.

No scope and sequence, meaning your child might learn the same thing twice or skip a subject matter needed.

MGA started out promising. The first grade and has been through two teachers in one year. High turn over rate amount staff and students. There are only seven kids in the class and it seems like a waste of money. The teachers have great hearts but don't seem to know what they are doing.

Perfect blend of being very involved in educating my children at their own pace along with professional teachers who teach the critical information with their added expertise.

My son is having a great Kindergarten year at MGA. As a family we are able to enjoy the flexible schedule and individualized education that homeschooling offers with the support of experienced teachers/homeschooling parents. My son loves learning with his friends in a classroom environment as well as learning with me at home.

MGA exists to partner with parents in providing a rigorous, engaging, Classical and Christian education for their children.
