Beskydy Mountain Academy is a four-year, university preparatory secondary school (gymnázium) located in Frýdlant nad Ostravicí, in the northeastern Czech Republic. Offering an educational experience based on creative, living-language learning and Christian values, BMA’s highly competitive program is registered with the Czech Department of Education. BMA is not exclusive to Christian believers, but aims to give personal care to each student in a family atmosphere marked by the love show by Jesus Christ.
Since opening in 2003, BMA has grown from eight students to capacity at 120. Despite a demographic population drop in perspective students, BMA receives an annual surplus of applications. In the past three years, more than 90% of BMA graduates have enrolled in university. The majority attend top Czech institutions, while a few have been accepted at North American and British universities, including Yale, Brown, Manchester (England), and Aberdeen (Scotland).
Students at BMA have several special opportunities, including a regionally unprecedented number of native English speakers, sponsored trips to attend American summer camps and university courses, and school visits from American teenagers. Extracurricular activities include baseball, chapel, and other student-initiated events.
