Thank you for your interest in learning more about the various ways you can support MA!
The Montgomery Academy has benefitted from a tradition of philanthropy since our founding in 1959. The very things that define the Academy experience, from our campus and facilities to our academic and co-curricular programs, all are made possible because of the generous support of alumni, current parents, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends. The spirit of volunteerism and giving and the countless ways the MA family gives back its time, creativity and resources truly sets MA apart.
