Educational journeys only happen once. The challenge parents face is making sure their children are on the right path, one that guides them in the best direction and allows them to follow their successes—and find lessons in failure. At Mounds Park Academy, we believe that the best educational path is one that instills passion for knowledge and equips children to improve our world.

Originals in the Making

At MPA, we embrace every child. We celebrate differences and guide children on journeys to discover who they are truly meant to be. Academics are central, but there’s much more to an MPA education. Athletics, fine arts, and extracurricular activities—children pursue it all here, discovering their own unique amazing.

Academically Challenged & Internally Motivated

MPA offers a rigorous education with purpose in a creative, hands-on, engaging environment that ensures students find joy in learning. Far more meaningful than memorization, children gain deep understanding and the ability to apply their knowledge across multiple disciplines in innovative ways.

Confident Freethinkers

Children have opinions, emotions, and ideas. At MPA, we encourage free expression. In fact, we expect it. Respectful discourse and critical thinking prepare young minds for college, careers, and life. When children gain the confidence and courage to challenge status quo, they become equipped to make a positive impact on our world.

Valued Members of a Caring Community

MPA is a welcoming community built on shared values. Small classes and a connected community create the best learning environment for all children. At MPA, we know and understand each child, and our teachers and students treat each other with kindness and respect.

Dreamers & Doers

At MPA, we move, we play, we dream, we do. We embrace wonder and creativity. We roll up our sleeves and get dirty. MPA students venture outside, around the corner, and across the world, to explore real-world topics.
