Join us for  

Academy Days March 13th-15th, 2020

Greetings from Monterey Bay Academy,

We would like to invite you to our Academy Days open house that will allow prospective students and parents to view MBA's campus and meet staff and students. We know this event will help you experience all that boarding school has to offer: dorm life, worship, campus ministries, music programs, academic classes and more! 

We are eagerly anticipating your arrival on our beautiful 379 acre coastal campus.  Much time and energy has gone into this event with you in mind.  We hope that after spending time with us, you will join our MBA family.
