All domestic students, whether they live in Missouri or in other states, are expected to complete a Missouri Academy Application Form. For admission purposes, a domestic student is either a US citizen or US Permanent Resident (with a green card) – who may reside in Missouri or anywhere else. The deadline for submission of all material is March 15. Typically, prospective students apply to the Missouri Academy during their sophomore year (10th grade) in high school, although younger students have been admitted in the past. The Missouri Academy program takes the place of a student's 11th and 12th grade years of traditional high school. Students need to have a strong foundation of Algebra II and Geometry before enrolling, but the Missouri Academy Admissions Committee looks at the overall picture of a student's academic performance by considering the following:#1. Cumulative GPA for courses taken in 9th and 10th grades (minimum re-calculated GPA of 3.5; the GPA is re- calculated including only core subjects such as mathematics, science, social sciences and English/Language Arts, based on official transcript)
Because the Missouri Academy is committed to the principles of Integrity and Quality (IQ), the student's character is an important consideration during the selection process. Thus, the Missouri Academy will not only strive to obtain an overall assessment of a student's interest/abilities in science and mathematics, but also assessment of a student's character – the student’s character and behavior are expected to contribute positively to the living and learning environment at the Missouri Academy.
