Share your love of MPA and receive a tuition credit!
MPA's referral program is a simple way of saying a heartfelt "thank you" to current families who recommend the school to friends, family members, neighbors, or colleagues. It is a small token of our appreciation for sharing your experiences, perspectives, and love for Mounds Park Academy.
When a new student completes the MPA application process based on a recommendation from a current family, the current family will receive a $250 credit toward the following year's tuition. If the new student is accepted and the family enrolls, an additional $250 credit will be applied. The more students who are referred, the more credits current families will receive.
Please contact the Office of Admission at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-748-5577 if you have any questions. This is the most important way that new families come to our school—thank you for sharing MPA!

MPA Referral Program in Action
For the Roseth family—parents Aaron and Anna, sixth grader Ari, fifth grader Andrew, and third grader Annika—who started in the fall of 2020, discovering MPA began with a bumper sticker on a teammate’s minivan at football practice. That teammate was Dylan Rengstorf, whose sister Emma, attended MPA. Ari and Dylan became fast friends and so did their families.
Shortly before meeting the Roseth family, Jason and Joana Rengstorf had chosen MPA after looking for a school where Emma could thrive in an inclusive place that provided a safe environment for her to excel as a student. When they found MPA, they knew it was the right fit.
Reaching out to make a personal connection is typically the most effective way to recommend MPA. This could be done over a cup of coffee, a heartfelt email, in the stands during a game, on a treadmill at the gym, or even over the proverbial water cooler. Another way to recommend MPA is by filling out the form above. We will send an email to the prospective family for you. Finally, the Office of Admission would be happy to prepare a packet of information about MPA for you to share, should that be helpful.
Regardless of the method of communication, speak from your heart. Current families have vast networks of people including friends, colleagues, neighbors, extended family members, acquaintances through activities, etc. Sharing your love of MPA with those people is, by nature, a generous act of kindness—you are trying to help the prospective family find a wonderful school community and a second home.
For a credit in the fall of 2022, only families enrolled for the 2021-22 and the 2022-23 school years are eligible. For a credit in the fall of 2023, only families enrolled for the 2022-23 and the 2023-24 school years are eligible. Faculty and staff are eligible if their child/children are enrolled at MPA.
The program applies only to new family applicants. The credit may be awarded for each individual new student in a family. Siblings of current students do not qualify.
When a new family inquires about MPA, they should note the referring family's name on the inquiry form or with admission staff. This information will be tracked in MPA's admission database.
The tuition credit will be split equally between the referring families.
The one-time tuition credit will be made in September of each year, once all students have applied and enrolled for the current year. This program is a tuition credit and never a refund. The tuition credit may not be applied to the deposit paid. This is not an annual or recurring credit. The credit has no cash value.
