Other Academic Opportunities

Research and Internships

The Missouri Academy has carefully cultivated relationships with Northwest Missouri State University researchers, and other researchers at institutions such as the University of Missouri-Columbia, Missouri S&T and the STARS Program (University of Missouri at St. Louis, Saint Louis University and Washington University in St. Louis) and Cerner Corporation. Through these relationships and collaborations, Missouri Academy students are afforded opportunities for research and internship experiences (summer and yearly) under the tutelage of mentors who are experts in their fields. This represents the Missouri Academy's commitment to ensure that students receive invaluable real-world, hands-on experience. The Missouri Academy is always seeking new alliances with other institutions of higher education and industry to help us provide these very special experiences to our nation's future leaders.
