Rockwood Students Participate in Missouri Scholars Academy Experience

A total of 11 Rockwood School District students representing all four high schools participated in a unique summer learning and personal development experience at the annual Missouri Scholars Academy (MSA).

Founded in 1985, the MSA is a three-week residential summer program held on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia for more than 300 of the state's top students entering their junior year of high school. 

The program, which ran from June 9-29, gave students the opportunity to interact with peers from around the state and embark on an educational and social experience administered by carefully selected faculty and staff and with a specially designed curriculum of interdisciplinary courses and a variety of stimulating extracurricular activities.

The MSA "reflects Missouri’s desire to strive for excellence in education at all levels. The program is based on the premise that Missouri’s gifted youth must be provided with special opportunities for learning and personal development in order for them to realize their full potential," according to the program website.

Congratulations to these outstanding Rockwood students!
