The Mississippi School of the Arts (MSA) will conduct its annual “Experience MSA Preview Day” on Saturday, Jan. 20, for interested students and their families to tour the school and explore the opportunities for current 10th graders.
MSA is an 11th and 12th grade visual and performing arts residential, public high school located in Brookhaven. Students not only meet and exceed the traditional Mississippi high school curriculum, but also receive special instruction in visual arts, vocal music, dance, writing/literary arts, filmmaking/media arts and theatre. MSA also has a “Collegiate Academy” program where qualified students can earn their high school diploma and an associate degree at the same time at no cost to them.
Students interested in MSA apply by Feb. 1 of their sophomore year. In addition to MSA students winning awards for their work on the state, regional and national levels, the school consistently has one of the highest ACT averages in the state.
“MSA is a great school for those students who want to explore the arts in an extraordinary way. We also fill a special need for students with demonstrated talent that need a collegiate level learning experience in the arts,” said Jennifer Jackson, MSA Director of School Advancement.
More information can be found at www.MSABrookhaven.org or by calling 601-823-1300. Applications are available online. Deadline for class of 2026 application is Feb. 1, 2024.
Preview Day is 10 a.m. until noon for prospective performing arts students, and 1-3 p.m. for non-performing arts.
