Being involved in extra-curriculuar activities is expected and encouraged, and that has a profound effect on the culture and character of the school. In fact, MPA looks for student who aren't afraid to jump in and explore new things. We know that students consistently perform better academically when they're involved in other parts of the school. They develop broader groups of friends, greater self-confidence, and deeper levels of tolerance and compassion. They become inspired by their experiences and unafraid of taking on new challenges.

Mounds Park Academy believes that physical education and competitive athletic programs complement the academic experience, which is why we offer one of the broadest prep school athletics programs in the Twin Cities. Many MPA coaches are teachers, and the fields and courts are extensions of their classrooms. We encourage each MPA student to participate and strive for excellence. Student athletes develop commitment, character, discipline, perseverance, initiative, leadership, cooperation, self-reliance, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
