  • Access to our Family Program for all members of a student’s family
  • Engaging extracurricular activities including: soccer, basketball, piano, ballet, computer science and art
  • Educational field trips around South Florida that have included: Museum of Discovery and Science, Zoo Miami, Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, Knaus Berry Farm and Butterfly World

MHA’s robust programming is supported by a dedicated network of volunteers from diverse business and service industries, who give their time and talent to facilitate real-world connections and learning for all students. MHA develops lifelong learners and establishes a strong educational foundation for them to build upon. We are preparing our children for successful and enriching futures!
