A Community Called to Excellence Since 1876

Mount de Sales Academy is a community called to excellence since 1876. MDS unites tradition and innovation to offer an outstanding college preparatory education. Located in the heart of vibrant Intown Macon, Mount de Sales is the oldest and most organically diverse independent private school in Middle Georgia and serves students in grades 6-12. As Mount de Sales continues the founding vision of the Catholic Sisters of Mercy, we seek to graduate students who are well prepared for academic and social challenges and who are inspired to live compassionate and God-centered lives. Students are encouraged to take ownership of their learning and have the flexibility to customize their educational path. A Mount de Sales graduate is poised to discover, challenged to innovate, and motivated to serve. We invite you to learn more about the mission of Mount de Sales here.
