Montverde Academy has had a positive impact on their lives of many former student-athletes. At Montverde Academy, students develop their personal characters through participation in a balanced involvement of academics, clubs, service organizations, and athletic programming. The Academy’s education offers unique curricula that integrate the important components of knowledge, character, and community – and where students are challenged with new ideas, and encouraged to do their best inside and outside the classroom. 2015 alumni Matheus Silva, a native of Brazil, exemplifies a former Montverde Academy student-athlete who’s been positively impacted by his Montverde Academy experience. Matheus is currently living his dream of being a professional Major League Soccer player for the San Jose Earthquakes. Montverde Academy gave Matheus the opportunity to learn new languages and cultures different from his own – as well as the educational opportunities and training tools to receive university scholarship offers from established NCAA Division 1 soccer programs. Silva credits much of his current success to attending Montverde Academy and recently informed MVA’s Alumni and Development Office via email, “…attending MVA definitely had a huge impact on my life, mainly because when I moved there I knew no English – but by the time I graduated I spoke English very well. I also developed the necessary tools to be successful in my life and future.”
