Students interested in MSA apply by February 1st 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 the #2 highest ACT average in the state.

MSA is a great school for those students who want to explore the arts in an extraordinary way.  We also fill a special need for students with demonstrated talent that need a collegiate level learning experience in the arts that is not widely available across our state.
