Since Mounds Park Academy opened its doors in 1982, it has graduated 1,595 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. For instance, the 51 members of the Class of 2018 received 124 offers of admission from four-year colleges and universities in 32 states. They chose to attend 30 different schools in 18 states and Washington, D.C.
