Who Can Apply?
Mid-South Gifted Academy is a micro-school serving academically gifted children in grades K-8. We offer a specialized environment using a variety of learning methods, particularly blended and project-based learning. MSGA students are highly motivated to learn and excited about personalized and accelerated opportunities. They take ownership of their learning by setting goals and working at their own pace to achieve them.
We are now waitlisting 2nd and 5th grade boys for the 2019-2020 school year as those cohorts are full. Please reach out to us if you would like your child to be added to the waitlist.
Step 1: Schedule a tour by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (901) 850-6695.
Step 2: Submit an application and IQ test results here. If needed, we offer IQ testing for a fee of $220, or you can seek private testing.
Step 3: Schedule a time for your child to visit MSGA.
If you are interested in participating in our Extended Open House option, please be sure to select that option on the application. Extended Open House is an opportunity for your child to attend MSGA for one month for a fee of $1500 with no obligation to continue attendance past that month. If you decide to continue your child’s attendance at MSGA, the $1500 fee will be credited toward your annual tuition cost. The Extended Open House option allows you and your child to decide if MSGA is a good fit.
Once you have completed the above steps, your child will be considered for admission for the 2019-2020 school year.
We consider a variety of factors to determine a child’s fit for MSGA and his or her admission to the program. They include:
- IQ test results
- Academic achievement
- Characteristics of creativity, leadership, and task commitment
- Student work samples if available
Our tuition for the 2019-2020 school year is $12,800. All fees are built into the tuition and cover enrollment, materials, technology, and local field trips. Monthly and biannual payment plans are available.
