Morristown-Beard School (MBS) is an independent, coeducational day school serving nine counties and more than 85 communities in northern New Jersey. The school motto, Ad Astra Per Aspera, can be translated as “To the Stars Through Adversity,” a phrase that embodies the essence of the MBS experience.
The MBS Summer Institute offers creative, enriching programs for rising 6th-12th graders and rising 9th-12th graders.
