I am a parent at MAA and my whole family is apart of the school! The principal knows my whole family. She even knows the grandparents! MAA is like a second home. My girls need to work hard and study nightly. Isn't that what every parent wants? We are paying for our daughters to get a top notch education.

I am a new student at Mount Assisi this year and I LOVE this school! I was shy and nervous but the girls accepted me right away. The teachers are real patient. I don't do well in math and my math teacher took time out and sat with me for a half hour everyday until I got the material. I went from a D

I also have made a great group of friends who I have a lot of fun with and treat me great! Also, my parents don't make a lot of money and we don't participate in everything and I still get a lot of attention! In fact I got 6 awards at our underclassman awards ceremony. Some people get mad and blame the school for their daughter failing. Well the school can't make you do your homework. We have a responsibility too and MAA raises us to be Independent leaders! I am so grateful for everything I have been taught. I am also grateful for the morals that have been instilled in us. I respect myself and others and that is how every human being should act. I love MAA and I would never want to be at any other school! Read less

I have just read some of the reviews and cannot disagree more! I have had 3 daughters attend Mount Assisi and you cannot underestimate the importance of an all girls school! My daughters have succeeded academically and scored very well on the ACT as well as obtained scholarships for all the colleges

They have made good friends who share our family values. Since it is a small school, they have played every sport they tried out for. In response to the school demanding money all the time- that is untrue. Many families receive financial aid and numerous allowances are made for those with financial hardships. Tuition is lower than other Catholic schools, there are no mandatory fundraising obligations, and attendance at fundraising activities (Comedy Night, Gala, etc.) is not required like at other schools. We also have far less fundraising activities than other schools. When my family was experiencing an unforeseen financial hardship, they were understanding and found a way to help us. We have been extremely happy! Read less

Not happy at all with the outcome of this school. Many girls failing classes, teachers not caring. The school is very small and you think you go there for the attention you would recieve if you don't understand your classes, guess again. No help, waiting lists, drama, bullying and it all comes down to
... Read more no one cares! Please do yourself a favor and look into other local schools. When choosing classes it is either A or B meaning you are either academic or not, there is no in between. No communication between faculty and parents. If you want to fail and continue to fail, this school is for you. As far as the girls that end up going to College-when you have a school with enrollment under 50 kids per class year-how hard is it to have a high percentage of girls going to college? I tell no lies here, I give fair warning-look into other schools! Read less

Please don't judge the school based on a couple rare disgruntled parents. They have personal issues with the administration. No school is perfect but we are very happy at MAA. There are many happy girls and parents that attend the school. We are by no means rich but manage to pay our way and have never

They love their school and will not leave it or their friends. We have met many wonderful people there over the last few years. The president, principle and assistant principle have always been open to discuss things if we had a problem and have been most helpful. They really care about transforming the little girls that come in as freshman to successful young women who will succeed in college. If you have the opportunity to attend an open house or other function do not pass it up. Read less

Unless you have hundreds and hundreds of dollars to donate to this school, don't send your kids here.

this school does nothing but look for money from the students. they are very sneaky in finding their money. the money that they collect from students does not benefit them at all. for example, the walkathon money was used for a colored printer that was put in the office and not even teachers are allowed

I am a 1986 graduate of Mt. Assisi. It was a great school and prepared me for college. I am a success in my profession, which involves leadership, and I have Mt. Assisi Academy to thank for that. If you found yourself not ready for college, it was the fault of the student not the instituion. Thank

I am just finishing my freshman year at MAA and i absolutely loved it!!! I can't wait to come back next year! The teachers are great and are always there when you have a question. They will come early before school and stay after at anytime if a student needs help.
