College Preparation

It is never too early to start planning for your college education. Regardless of grade level, we encourage all of our cadets and their parents to meet with the college advisor while selecting courses at MMA. We conduct the PSAT for 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th grade each year in October to help prepare for the SAT.

As you get closer to graduation, there are a lot of dates and deadlines you will need to manage. We are here to help guide you through the process and keep you in touch with your goals. To assist you in this process, MMA designs individualized academic roadmaps for the best success in college acceptance.

Mentor Program

Our focus at Massanutten is your student's success. To help them achieve their highest potential we have implemented a mentor program that pairs each one of our students with a faculty/staff member. Once a week the mentors meet with their mentees and discuss grades and general quality of life. They also plan and participate in community service opportunities throughout the year.
These mentors also function as a point of contact for our parents.
