Here’s what one international student has to say...
I am now studying piano at one of the most prestigious music schools in the world and without Mount Ellis Academy I would not have been here right now. The Mount Ellis Academy family helped me develop my talent in music, encouraged me, provided me with all the necessary resources, and taught me to serve and to inspire the world around me with my music. I am sincerely grateful for everything that Mount Ellis Academy has done for me.”
