"We have seen such a transformation in our son this year and are so in love with Mount Paran.
It was truly the best decision we ever made!"

— T. Cline, Parent


Students are given every opportunity to excel in the classroom with small student-teacher ratios and rigorous course loads. Uncompromising academics are in no way sacrificed due to our Christian faith; nowhere in scripture is mediocrity applauded. However, our unwavering commitment to exemplary academics goes hand-in-hand with nurturing faith within the hearts and minds of our students.
