Located on the Northwest campus, the Missouri Academy is a two-year residential, early-entrance-to-college program for academically talented and highly motivated high school students. Graduates of the program earn an associate degree as well as a high school diploma.
Students selected to enroll in the program have completed 10th grade at traditional high schools, and the Missouri Academy program replaces their junior and senior years of high school. The entire curriculum consists of college coursework taught by professors at Northwest. Missouri Academy students sit side-by-side in classrooms with traditional University students, and professors have the same high expectations for these students as they do for traditional university students.
