"My time at MBA was the pivotal experience in my life. Today, sixty years later, my life is still guided by the spiritual orientation instilled through the ministry of MBA to a troubled teen. The ministry that I am still involved in - being a Christian author and a pastor to the church of the unchurched (The Good News Rescue Mission) - had its origins in the Godly nurture I received there so long ago."

"The atmosphere at MBA is very warm and supportive, the teachers are very Christ centered, the school offers many interesting opportunities for a variety of activities, and the campus is an idyllic place to attend school."

"I feel a certain pride toward MBA. I feel it is a school that really develops a child's character. Compared to other schools I have seen, MBA seems so personal and because of the boarding school experience, it is like a family. I feel very attached to MBA and being at MBA makes me feel like part of a kind of special 'club', a club connected with God that has many members that all have that same feeling."
Danica Betts, Class of 2011
