Our Mission


Empowering young people from under-resourced neighborhoods to become confident, productive and principled members of society through excellence in academics.


At Meeting Street Academy we believe in the power of a rigorous and inspiring educational experience to put young people from all economic backgrounds on the path to success. Our model of excellence is built upon academic challenge, development of character and partnership with family.  We provide under-resourced families with a life-changing opportunity for their children to learn what it takes to succeed both inside and outside of the classroom.

Path to Success

At Meeting Street Academy we are committed to providing all children with the educational opportunity that we believe is a fundamental right.  Our mission insists that our schools support academic achievement.  Students' academic achievement depends on our ability to teach a strong academic curriculum and develop the personal skills of our students. At MSA we focus on the development of grit, gratitude, optimism, empathy, citizenship, integrity, self-control, and curiosity because strength in each of these areas is a high indicator for success in school, work and relationships.  At MSA our academic and social skills curriculum is putting children on the path to success.
