Recovering Christ-Centered Education Since 1996

What started as one family's dream for educating their own children has grown into the only PreK-12 classical, Christian school in the Cincinnati area. Since our founding in 1996, Mars Hill Academy has been dedicated to recovering the classical, Christ-centered form of education that once laid the foundation for Christian culture.

That first year we opened our doors in a church hall to 27 students and three full-time teachers. Today, we have grown into a vibrant community of nearly 350 students with more than 40 loving, professional faculty and staff serving on our Mason campus.

As a classical, Christian school, Mars Hill exists to assist parents in training their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord by offering academic instruction from a fully integrated Christian perspective. We equip our students to joyfully learn for themselves in academics, arts, athletics, and service using the proven classical method in an engaging atmosphere. Keeping the end in sight from the beginning, we aim to graduate young men and women who possess a deep understanding of their world; the ability to discern truth, beauty, and goodness; and the tools to think, learn, and influence the world for the glory of God. Learn more about How We Teach.

Accredited through the Association of Classical Christian Schools, Mars Hill has graduated seniors into the world for Christ’s Kingdom since our first class in 2003. In terms of earthly achievements, Mars Hill has produced many National Merit Commended Scholars and Finalists, national spelling bee competitors, champion athletic teams, and critically acclaimed drama productions. More importantly, Mars Hill Academy has become a school where Christian teachers love their students and their subjects, and where students are equipped to become life-long learners with a desire to love and serve the Lord. Discover How We Shape Lives.

At Mars Hill Academy, you'll discover a vibrant community of families, a true partnership between parents and teachers, a celebration of Christian faith, and a joyful, engaging environment. We invite you to join the Mars Hill family and discover the difference for yourself!
