Located on the Northwest campus, the Missouri Academy is a two-year residential, early-entrance-to-college program on the Northwest campus. The program replaces the junior and senior year of high school as Academy students participate in the same classes as traditional students and are held to the same academic expectations while living, socializing and studying in a learning community of peers.
