NEW STUDENT ADMISSIONS

A High School Experience That Shapes Your Future

High School provides the opportunity for positive growth and development. During these four years, you'll face obstacles and make choices that will impact your life long after graduation. We've helped hundreds of high school students prepare for college, strengthen their faith, and realize their full potential during their time here, and we're extending the same opportunity to you.

At Mount Pisgah Academy, you'll experience an amazing campus, engaging classes, and a caring community. Whether you choose to live on campus or commute from home each day, we promise you'll make memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.

Our teachers are dedicated to helping you succeed academically, but they also work hard to make classes interesting and fun. Smaller class sizes make it easier for teachers to get to know you personally so they can help you reach your full potential. You can even take college-level classes and earn college credits while you're at MPA. 

Choosing a high school is a big decision. Especially when it means you may live away from home for the first time. We want you to think of MPA as one of the best decisions you've ever made. Let's get started! 

We Cannot Wait to Meet You!

Come for a tour and find out if Mount Pisgah Academy is the right school for you.
