Philosophy

Merrimac Heights Academy is a private, nonprofit school for students aged 12 to 22 with complex learning, language, and social challenges whose individual needs have not been adequately met in a traditional public school setting. Our mission is to provide our students with essential life skills training and an individualized college and career readiness education using an experiential and project-based learning approach in a nurturing and personalized environment. As a result of a comprehensive MHA education, our students are empowered to lead confident, fulfilling, successful and independent lives.
