MSA also has a “Collegiate Academy” program where qualified students can earn their high school diploma and an associate degree from Copiah-Lincoln Community College at the same time at no cost. Students interested in MSA must apply by Feb. 1 of their sophomore year.

In addition to MSA students consistently winning awards for their work on the state, regional and national levels, the school holds one of the highest ACT averages in the state.

The school also fills a special need for students with demonstrated talent who need a collegiate-level learning experience in the arts and academics that is not widely available across our state.
