The admission process is made up of a series of steps that will help us get to know students who are considering Mounds Park Academy. We also encourage families to join us on campus for a variety of events throughout the year as that is the best way to learn about all of the wonderful opportunities we have to offer. Space and financial assistance is available in most grades and applications are being accepted on a rolling basis.  We look forward to working with your family through the admission process!
