Since Mounds Park Academy opened its doors in 1982, it has graduated 1,710 students. They are dreamers. They are doers. They are the kind of people who are making our world a better place. Throughout their time at MPA, they were immersed in a college-going culture that developed their unique set of interests, priorities, and aspirations. They were challenged and supported in the work of finding the best college fit through rigorous courses, a robust and intentional college counseling program, and supportive faculty and staff who helped guide them (and their families) each step of the way.

The 60 members of the Class of 2023 received offers of admission from 110 unique four-year colleges and universities in 33 states, Washington, D.C., Canada and Scotland. They chose to attend 39 different schools in 20 states, Washington, D.C. and Scotland.
