New Students

If you have questions about the admissions process at Montverde Academy, many of those can be answered in the FAQ.

All students entering sixth grade (new and returning) and new students entering seventh and eighth grade are expected to attend; returning students entering seventh and eighth grade are welcome (but not expected) to attend. During orientation, the Deans will offer information about the school year, and our grade-level teachers will provide brief overviews of their courses.

  • Our Sixth-Grade Flight School will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. (required for all new and returning sixth-grade students).
