Freedom Mountain Academy:
A Specialty Boarding School for Teens
Organic farming. Stimulating academics. Wilderness adventure.

 Accepting students for the 2016/2017 academic year. Enrollment for new students is open from September 11, 2016 through October 8, 2016.


 Freedom Mountain Academy is a small, non-denominational, co-ed boarding school whose unique work/study/adventure curriculum provides a natural framework for high-school students to explore their own potential and make significant personal growth. Operating upon a basis of mutual trust, FMA is a one-year program for twenty students of high school age that offers a warm and friendly place for those who wish to grow in physical, mental, and emotional strength and who are willing to accept the challenge.


Freedom Mountain Academy (FMA) was founded upon the belief that young people, given opportunities to pit themselves against challenges greater than today’s ordinary demands, can come to know and enjoy the satisfaction of a healthy, productive life. Meaningful challenges require a demanding environment, which is why the work/study/adventure program at FMA is structured to provide unusual encounters that test the mind in the classroom, the spirit on our secluded farm campus, and the body on monthly backpacking adventures. Students learn to make choices that result in profitable outcomes from varied experiences.

Our annual tuition discount of 10% ($2,750.00) is in effect until June 30, 2016. Contact us today!
