Missouri Academy

Sending School Information


Students who enroll at the Missouri Academy from public schools in Missouri may be kept on the rolls of their sending school at the discretion of their school administrators and the students.  We refer to student's prior schools as "Sending Schools".  Sending Schools are contacted prior to the start of each Fall to elect whether or not to keep the students on their rolls. This applies only to public schools in the state of Missouri.
