Why Choose MPA?
A child's educational journey only happens once. The challenge parents face is finding one that is engaging, inspiring, and challenging. At Mounds Park Academy, the #1 ranked private school in the Twin Cities, we offer a path that guides students in the right direction and allows them to follow their successes—and find lessons in failure. Through this, we instill passion for knowledge and equip students to improve our world.
Originals in the Making
At Mounds Park Academy, 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 a private school education. Athletics, fine arts, and co-curricular activities—children pursue it all here, discovering their own unique and amazing selves.
Academically Challenged & Internally Motivated
Mounds Park Academy offers a rigorous, college preparatory education with purpose in a creative, hands-on, whole child, 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.
Children have opinions, emotions, and ideas. At Mounds Park Academy, 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
Mounds Park Academy is a welcoming community built on shared values. Small classes and a connected community create the best learning environment for all children. Here, we know and understand each child, and our teachers and students treat each other with kindness and respect.
Dreamers & Doers
At Mounds Park Academy, we move, we play, we dream, we do. We embrace wonder and creativity. We roll up our sleeves and get dirty. Students venture outside, around the corner, and across the world, to explore real-world topics.
