About Mount Royal Academy

Mount Royal Academy is a private Catholic school nestled in the hills of New Hampshire’s Dartmouth - Lake Sunapee Region. Since 1994 the faculty, families and friends of Mount Royal have strived to provide not only a quality education to the children of our community, but most importantly a formation in Christian faith and morals.  What began as an elementary school, grades Kindergarten through eight, has grown to include a preschool with three and four year old programs and a liberal arts college preparatory High School.  Mount Royal Academy is thankful to be the first lay-founded independent school to recieve Catholic School Recognition from the Bishop of Manchester, NH.


“Mount Royal is a great school. There are great people, and the teachers really care about the students’ futures.
The best part of Mount Royal Academy is the unity of people and friendships.” - Matthew Begin, ’11

At MRA we understand that the student is not one-dimensional but is a complex harmony of body, soul, intellect, will, and emotions.  These faculties must each be formed both inside and outside the classroom.  Inside the classroom, teachers use a systematic approach in all subject areas that builds upon information and skills students have already mastered.  Students are encouraged to develop the skills of discernment, freedom, and wonder in order to make good choices in regards to personal, academic, and family life.  We pride ourselves in striving to offer the best education and Christian formation that a school can offer.
