About MRA

The path to your child's future

Madison-Ridgeland Academy is a community of students, parents, faculty, staff, administrators and alumni—an extended family—who are committed to the school’s mission of developing the mind, body, and spirit of each child to the highest standards. This mission is manifested daily in our school life through outstanding academic offerings accompanied by a full array of artistic and athletic programs, a Christian emphasis in our school life, and a myriad of clubs and organizations with opportunities to lead and serve others. We are a college preparatory school serving students from K3 through graduation. MRA provides a pathway to a well-rounded learning experience which prepares students for lives of learning, character, and service.
