Founded in 1985, the Missouri Scholars Academy (MSA) celebrates its 28th season this year. The goals of the Academy are to help gifted students achieve their full potential and motivate them to use their abilities to attain high standards of achievement, to encourage local schools to improve and expand gifted education programs; and to assist in providing the state with experienced faculty and specialized curriculum for such students.

For over 25 years, MSA was sponsored, in full or in part, by the state. The 2012 Academy is supported in part by funds provided by the University of Missouri, by MSA alumni and friends, by Missouri corporations, and by a Student Activity Fee. The 2012 Academy also benefits from funding provided by the State of Missouri. All aspects of MSA are the responsibility of the University of Missouri-Columbia.

Every public and private high school in the state is allowed to nominate at least one student for the Academy. Academically, students represent the top one-half of one percent of the state’s sophomore class. No grades or credits are awarded through the program.

Students attending MSA will be exposed to a wide range of activities as well as to intensive instruction in their chosen area of specialization. The faculty is composed of outstanding teachers from high schools throughout the state. Guest speakers, performers, discussions, and career education will be combined with extracurricular and social activities to round out the curriculum
