Everything the MSA students need is within walking distance from the Academy House, the MSA dorm. The House Parent works with both the Director and the students to set and maintain the guidelines of the Academy home. The House Parent ensures that the A-House is a home where students feel cared for and at the same time learn self-sufficiency in a group living environment. Study time is scheduled from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM on Sunday through Thursday evenings. Students are expected to use this time quietly and constructively (no social media, cell phones, video games or loud music during this period). Lights are out at 10:30 PM
In addition to students living at the A-House, MSA enrolls a number of day students. They participate in all the same school activities, are subject to the same expectations, and are always welcomed visitors at the A-House.
All necessary transportation is provided by the Academy vans. Occasional jaunts to Wilmington or West Dover are, with permission, accessible via the MOOver, Deerfield Valley’s free public transportation system.
Our emphasis is on a comprehensive lifestyle conducive to personal, intellectual, and athletic growth. For this reason, the use of any tobacco, alcohol, or drugs other than doctors’ prescribed drugs, is forbidden. If you are up to the challenge of counting yourself among serious student/athletes who love what they do— MSA could be your home too.
