All About Mound Street Academies

Mound Street Academies provides a second chance for young people between the ages of 16 and 22 who have dropped out of high school. Students combine real-world, computer-based, academic instruction with career exploration and work-based learning to earn a high school diploma and gain a career focus. Since MSA opened in 2002, we have helped over 860 students graduate from high school.

Mound Street Academies consists of three pathways that allow students to create schedules and classes that are tailored to their needs. Our well-trained, caring staff teaches our small classes in an adult, business-like atmosphere.
