Grant, and William ‘Bull’ Nelson; and to provide pupils with an outstanding education, with a focus on fostering an understanding of science, mathematics, and technology.


The Academy provides a unique opportunity for families in and around Maysville to enroll their children in an institution focused on academic excellence.
