We are so happy we found Massanutten for our 16-year-old son. We noticed so many positive changes after one year and are looking forward to him graduating in 2014! Six months after visiting, our son called the admissions office and told them he was ready. So grateful to the faculty and staff for all they have done.

The best decision we ever made was introducing my son to MMA! He has always been a good kid but always had a hard time academically in public school. I found MMA and asked if he would like to check into it. We visited and from that moment he knew he had found his place. Since he has been at MMA he has become a leader, an honor roll student and is happier then I have ever seen him. This school has brought out the best in him. For the cadets that realize that this is an oppertunity, the sky is the limit. The comradery amung the cadets is amaizing! Everyone is very supportive. My son now refers to MMA as his second home. I would reccomend this school to any teen interested in an alternative to public school.

MMA relies highly on what the students make of it. If he or she decides to look for a way to get around the rules and not cooperate they will have a terrible time. However if they do what they are supposed to a cadet will have some of the best time of his or her life. This is not to say that sometimes the school does suck, but you would be hard pressed to find a place that doesn't. The teachers I have met were some of the greatest and smartest people I have ever known. Yes we do get a lot of new faculty every year but the quality rarely suffers. Leadership here is very strong within the corps, I have never seen such a collection of great young people and i'm proud to call them my friends. Adult leadership suffers in a lot of areas but improvements are being made. My favorite part of my experience here was forming the bonds I will keep all my life, this includes many kids and many adults. So in conclusion i'll say that anyone who does not like it here often makes it much worse on themselves. They will refuse to fix their own problems and will blame it on the school. MMA is an amazing place even if some don't realize it, they will.

I am thankfull for Massanutten Military Academy for helping me raise two wonderfull young men.

Hello all! :D I'm a proud member of this awesome family called MMA! I came from another country (Brazil) after have served almost 32 years in the Brazilian Army, and I can garantee you that MMA has a perfect combination and balance between military model and a kind attention to our cadets. We are preparing future Leaders here! Como to visit us!! Go Colonels!! Col. Marcelo Goncalez

Lots of promises but they are not kept. This school year, 5 of my child's 7 teachers have changed from highly qualified teaching staff, to people who have no experience or are retraining in education. The band program was dropped halfway through the school year and that class became study hall. Not all the activities and teams they tell you about really exist (no swimming, no scouting, no drama club). We would not send our chlld back here even if it were free.

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.
