About Mt. Ellis Academy
Mt. Ellis Academy (MEA) is a Christian private boarding school founded in 1902. The staff at Mt. Ellis Academy teach and mentor with their philosophy of “whole person” development, helping each student grow mentally, physically, and spiritually. They foster skills and attitudes that promote healthful leisure activities, self confidence, sociability, honesty and integrity to help students become productive members of society.
Why Attend Here?
Mt. Ellis Academy is located near the foothills of the beautiful Rocky Mountains, making this the ideal location for experiential outdoor living. Students will have the opportunity to float along the Missouri River and study from the journals of famous explorers Lewis & Clark in which they wrote about this exact location. More importantly, MEA prepares students for success with college-focused instruction. Students who attend MEA are equipped with critical thinking skills and an appreciation for music, literature, art, and new languages. There are no school-related activities on Saturdays. In fact, Saturday, also known as the Sabbath, is observed by all students and staff to rest from secular activities and focus on developing good relationships with God and with each other. This offers students a very unique and beneficial experience.
