Upper School

Our vision at Madison Academy is to provide a Christian education. As principal, my role is to protect the environment allowing students to grow in all areas of their life: academically, intellectually, and to find their place spiritually. We have an amazing team of teachers who are dedicated to a spirit of excellence. My goal is to empower them so they can do their job of pouring into the kids. When asked, “What makes MA special?”, students respond by saying, “I believe the teachers really do care about me.”

Pertinent to intellectual growth is providing academic opportunities that both challenge the elite students and develop the emerging students. Our teachers emphasize the pursuit of knowledge to empower students to make informed and wise decisions about their futures. Our academic pursuits and career opportunities demand an immersion in technology. Our students experience opportunities to learn and grow in this area through basic presentation skills, and they also have more advanced choices in programming and coding. Preparing students for college as well as life is at the heart of our mission.

We believe in a holistic approach to investing in kids while preparing them for their future. It is better to prepare a child for the path ahead than to smooth the path out so much they never learn. Our staff has a calling to not only teach but to walk with our students through these challenging and foundational years of their lives. From classrooms to the mission field, from fine arts to the sports field, we believe students are experiencing life education. Drama, athletic teams, and the creative arts department provide platforms for young men and women to experience camaraderie, learn teamwork, and express their various talents. 

The LORD provides each of us with a purpose. Our purpose is to provide a Christian education with a spirit of excellence while holding students accountable and supporting them to grow in wisdom, stature and in favor with God and man.

We appreciate your interest in Madison Academy!
