In 2013 the Morrison Board approved a full high school program for the Taipei and Kaohsiung campuses. With the securing of property in Linkou and the design and construction of MATs new purpose built campus, 10th grade was added for the 2016-17 school year and 11th grade for the 2019-20 school year. The high school program will be complete with the addition of 12th grade on our new Linkou campus for the 2020-21 school year. Morrison Academy is a fully accredited K-12 educational institution with ACSI and WASC, and the regularly reviewed and updated curriculum taught is standard across all of our campuses
Educating Minds and Hearts
Our school’s tagline, Journeying Beyond Knowledge to Wisdom, is the sincere goal of our educators. As a Christian school, we are committed to educating not only the minds of our students but also their hearts. For us, education goes beyond academics as we help students grow in their faith, make good life choices, and understand the importance of a biblical worldview. Academic conversations in the classroom go beyond memorizing facts as students wrestle with life’s biggest questions. Conversations between students and teachers in the halls are not simply focused on grades and college but also on who students are, where they are going, and why they are headed there. Our most fervent prayer is that our students leave our school prepared to have a deep and meaningful impact on the world for Christ.
God commands us to not only love Him with all our heart, strength, and soul, but also with our mind. The high school’s staff is fully certified with degrees from relevant fields, and many of our high school staff members have advanced degrees. More importantly, our teachers are excellent, motivated, and sincerely invested in the success and well being of our students. They combine high expectations of students with dynamic and creative instruction.
In the high school students bring their own computing devices for learning in the classroom. Our teachers integrate technology into their instruction when appropriate and require students to challenge themselves through the use of educational media in a variety of projects. Students in the high school are also required to take a designated number of online courses. This is an essential skill for 21st-century learners, and it also broadens the scope of our high school course offerings.
One of MAT high school’s strengths is its size. Small high school classes allow for highly personalized instruction. Our staff seek to educate and nurture each and every one of our students intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, and ethically. Our teachers truly know our students, and parents are afforded with detailed and accurate information through conferences, online grade reporting, online homework calendars, and guardian updates from the Google Classroom many teachers use regularly.
