Children Of Alumni
Growing and strengthening the Mounds Park Academy community is very important to us. As an MPA graduate, you are the cornerstone of our community, which we hope will last for generations to come.
As Mounds Park Academy comes of age, we have experienced an increase in the number of alumni who wish to send their children to MPA. To aid in this legacy, we are pleased to offer Children of Alumni, a special program that makes it easier for you to provide an MPA education to your young children.
We asked MPA alum and current parent Kristi Green '89 why she chose MPA for her family. Here’s what she had to say:
"When my husband and I were looking for schools for our first child there was no question where I wanted him to go. As a matter of fact, I was so excited about the option of MPA that our oldest child actually visited MPA as a baby ... and I think he was given the smallest possible Mounds Park Academy t-shirt ever made!
When our son attended kindergarten, my husband was able to capture the full MPA experience and he was hooked. We now have three children in multiple divisions who have experienced even more than I ever thought possible at this school.
Mounds Park Academy gives each of our three children more than just small class sizes, personalized learning, and focus on the whole child. Our children have become independent learners, thinkers, and doers who each day engage in meaningful learning inside and outside the regular classroom with some of the most dedicated educators in the profession. At Mounds Park Academy my children know that they are cared about, they will be constantly challenged, and when they fail it is just an opportunity to find way to succeed. This is lifelong learning at its best."
It's Easy to Apply
