These include grants to study and travel across the globe, excellent teachers and coaches who are committed to providing the very best education to our students, and nationally recognized programs like debate, fine arts, service, robotics and more. The best way to experience MBA is to come see it in person. We hope you’ll visit us, take a tour of the campus, and see first hand this vibrant and caring community.
Montgomery Bell Academy is a School for Boys
Montgomery Bell Academy is Middle Tennessee's only boys' school. It is a place where a boy’s academic, extracurricular and emotional needs are the priority. Learning is most productive in an environment where friendships thrive. Fulfilled students are more inclined to take risks by pursuing a wide range of interests. Importantly, our outstanding teachers understand how boys learn. MBA has the ability to integrate the curriculum in such a way as to make students as comfortable with poetry as they are with physics. Choosing themes to which boys respond – courage, adventure, risk-taking, honor, and a sense of duty – is an effective approach to enhance learning and communication.
Grades: 7 - 12 (boys only) Enrollment: 800; Established: 1867
