About

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 striven 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 8th, 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 receive Catholic School recognition from the Bishop of Manchester, NH.


"My children are learning to think critically and solve problems. They are fortunate to have not just one good teacher, but an entire school of great teachers truly dedicated to teaching them, and helping them to strive for a higher purpose.” - Mary Bellino, school parent 2018

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.
