About Montverde

Montverde Academy offers considerable advantages to parents and students seeking the highest quality education for entrance into the world’s elite colleges and universities. At the heart of the Montverde Academy experience is an engaging and challenging academic environment that gives students the desire and skills to achieve at the highest levels. Outside of the classroom, students continue to develop their talents and abilities through involvement in fine arts, athletics, school clubs, and service organizations. Our international character adds an exciting dimension to our community and the educational experience we provide.

Montverde Academy is an international, coeducational, independent college preparatory school for grades PK3-12, with our boarding program serving grades 7-12, and post-graduate studies. Our mission is to inspire students to become knowledgeable leaders with global vision that instills a passion for learning, and that nurtures character development in a disciplined and diverse community. Five generations of Montverde Academy graduates have been guided by three fundamental principles: Knowledge, Character and Community. These principles are illustrated in the classroom through Subject Area Concentration diplomas, as well as Advanced Placement and Honors courses. Seventy-three percent of our students pass the Advanced Placement exams and 53% score a 4 or higher. Our students have a 100% college acceptance rate, including prestigious schools such as Harvard, Yale, MIT, and UC Berkeley.

Opening on September 23, 1912 in a two-room wooden building, the Academy now educates nearly 1,100 students, including more than 350 boarding students from across the United States and 60 countries worldwide. Our 125-acre campus includes an athletic complex featuring a 400-meter running track, soccer, baseball, softball, and football fields and four tennis courts. A new field house opened in 2012. The 44,000 square foot athletic facility consists of an innovative basketball court designed to hold an estimated audience of 1,500 people, two additional practice basketball courts, two volleyball courts, and a pioneering 4,400 square-foot fitness center equipped with state of the art fitness machinery, showers, and locker rooms, coach’s offices, film and conference rooms, and concessions area.
