Daily life at MHA reflects one of fellowship, community and collaboration. We’ve created a flexible space for dedication, exploration, learning, and play. As a tight knit community of mixed-age children, we seek to teach, support, nurture and collaborate with each other daily. Our environment fosters a culture of respect and character development within each child, and every aspect of our learning is from a traditional Worldview. We’re focused on teaching educational core foundations and doing so with excellence.
We have replaced external motivators with an intrinsic growth mindset. Our hope is that your children will have fun while they’re learning, sparking students to be inspired to learn, think, know, question and explore the amazing world in which we live.
We are so grateful to live in Summit County where people gravitate towards the outdoors naturally. We try to take advantage of the beauty and adventure around us, offering our students plenty of time to explore and play outside through our dedicated year-round adventure program TREK.
While we’ll have a regular routine, every day will be different based off our distinct offerings and rotation of subjects, and with the educational foundations happening daily. Students will have the flexibility to move about and learn however they are most comfortable.
Each Pod lives out different priorities based on their development level and goals, but a common denominator will be educating on core foundations
in literacy, math, history and science. To learn more about our daily life for our students, visit our Pods + Curriculum Page.

We believe that bringing students into nature, creating community, testing their resolve, building resilience, and gaining confidence in their abilities in nature is an essential part of childhood. Unplugging and investing in each other is more than just an adventure, it’s bringing us back to what’s important. We feel strongly that outdoor adventure and exercise will help provide an opportunity for essential childhood development to take place.
