Academic excellence in preparation for college has been essential to our mission since our founders opened the doors of MUS. We offer a wide variety of courses focused on the liberal arts – English, mathematics, classical and modern languages, history, sciences, and fine and performing arts. An experienced, dedicated, and caring faculty guides our boys on their way, as they discover how to learn and discern, how to think and how to reason.

Our teachers encourage all manner of intellectual pursuits as they share their own particular passions, be they detective fiction, robotics engineering, Portuguese culture, statistical analysis, Augustan poetry, the Maker Movement, or the math of music.

Our students are fully engaged in their educational journey, and their academic success is evident in Advanced Placement scores, participation in academic honor societies, success in interscholastic competitions, and college acceptances and scholarships. However, the ultimate measure of their – and our – success is the development of a lifelong love of learning.

School Policies

List of 3 items.

  • Emergencies, Weather Closings

    During adverse weather conditions, administrators monitor the situation and decide when the school will close or follow abbreviated hours. The decision is posted on the school’s website and social media as soon as it is made, so please do not call or message school officials or administrative offices.

    The school also calls, emails, and texts families during school emergencies and closings. These emergency notifications are called Owls Alerts. For us to contact you, we need accurate contact information and your permission to text you.

    If you need to update your contact information, go to the Profile Update page of our website. You must also text "YES" to 87569 to allow us to text you.

    The school responds to severe weather and other emergencies with a practiced procedure of securing students as quickly and as safely as possible in the most secure environment that the facilities offer.

    In any real emergency, students are not to leave campus without permission from the administration. Buildings are safer than vehicles during these events, and the driving lanes on campus must be as free as possible for emergency vehicles or for the orderly dismissal from school once conditions improve according to the National Weather Service.
