About this school

Who will your child become? An arist? A diplomat? A poet? An engineer? An athlete? Or, perhaps, all of these? Mounds Park Academy was founded on the belief that children need the opportunity to discover and refine their talents, to be challenged in the classroom until they unlock their true potential, and to be led through values-based education to become globally conscious citizens of character. For more than 30 years, MPA has been the place for students to become who they were meant to be.
