Back to School

Let’s Get the New Year Started!

It’s that time of year – time to prepare for the coming 2022-23 school year!

Please be sure to check back as any new information or changes will be added here.

New Students


If you have questions about the admissions process at Montverde Academy, many of those can be answered in the FAQ. If you are a new Boarding student and have questions about residential life, you will want to explore the Student Life portion of our website. You can view the Welcome Week (for Boarding Students) activities here.

The MVA campus store, located in the Student Center, opens on August 15th and is available to purchase a variety of approved outerwear for the academic day, as well as spirit-wear for our spirit Fridays and spirit items.

Parents of new students may want to join the Parents Association Facebook group about current and upcoming events within the Parent Association.

Transportation Needs

For students to have transportation arranged from the airport, bus, or train you MUST COMPLETE the Transportation Request Form to provide us the travel details. It is important to fill this out as soon as you have your travel itinerary so we can arrange your pick-up from the airport. Please remember that students are NOT allowed to take taxis, Uber, Lyft, or other forms of transportation from the airport. They must contact us with their itinerary to arrange safe and reliable transportation to campus.

When arriving at Orlando International Airport (MCO), it is important to know our meeting place is for pickup, Terminal B-Level 1 outside parking space B26. Please review the Airport Guide provided on the Orientation Page or bookmark the site address to your phone for reference. It shows you picture-by-picture how to get to this parking space from the gate.

For any questions, changes, or delays, please email transportation@montverde.org. During travel, if there are any changes to flight itineraries, delays or questions you MUST call the Administrator on Duty at 321.231.4106. Add that number to your WhatsApp for those that do not have U.S. phones.

Upper School


All Upper School students should be sure to have notebooks, notebook paper, pens, and pencils for the first day of school. During the first week of school, Upper School teachers will let students know about any additional materials or supplies needed for their courses.

Most school supplies are available for purchase on campus in the Student Center. The Academy will also arrange trips for boarding students to local-area shops to purchase any necessary school supplies.

Students taking Honors or Advance Placement courses should review the Summer Reading List, which can be found on the Upper School academics page.

For specific orientation information, please view the Orientation Schedule.

Middle School


Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! We are looking forward to welcoming all our new and returning students to Lindor Hall this fall, and we can’t wait to see each of you soon.

This year, our Middle School orientation programs will be held on Thursday, August 18. 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 required) 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 am to 10:30 am (required for all new and returning sixth-grade students).
  • Seventh-Grade Orientation and Open House will be held from 10:45 am to 12:45 pm (required for all new seventh-grade students; optional for returning seventh-grade students).
  • Eighth-Grade Orientation and Open House will be held from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm (required for all new eighth-grade students; optional for returning eighth-grade students).

Please plan to arrive on campus with enough time to allow for parking and to make your way to Lindor Hall, where each of these programs will begin. Returning students should bring their school-issued iPads to their orientation program. New students will receive their iPads during orientation.

As you look forward to next year, please visit the Middle School page on our website for additional information, and please make sure to review the following resources:
