MSA's Vision and Mission
To be an innovative, sustainable model of academic excellence for all students that creates well-rounded, lifelong learners and global citizens.
We provide accelerated and inclusive curricula and instruction in all subjects, with an emphasis on math and science.
We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the
land of the Ochéthi Šakówin (pronounced “oh-CHEH-tee shaw-KOH-we,”) The People of the
Seven Council Fires and the Wahpekute Band (pronounced “wah-PEH-koo-tay”). It is within
MSA’s responsibility as an academic institution to disseminate knowledge about Indigenous
peoples, and their history with this land. MSA works to build relationships with Native American
students and families through academic pursuits and historical recognition.
