Athletics Philosophy


Mounds Park Academy strongly believes athletics complement the academic experience, provide balance to our students' lives, and foster school spirit. We offer one of the broadest prep-school athletic programs in the Twin Cities with first-rate facilities. MPA coaches are teachers, and the fields are extensions of the classroom. Athletics at MPA encourage students to participate, engage, and dream big. Through this, student athletes develop commitment, character, perseverance, initiative, leadership and teamwork.

With nine team state championships and 18 individual state championships, our athletes transform their gifts and talents into everlasting success. They do so with a no-cut policy that encourages inclusion and sportsmanship and creates lifelong memories. Whether an athlete wants to pursue their sport at the collegiate level or try something for the first time, they'll find they were made for MPA athletics.
