The mission of Memphis Street Academy Charter School is to enhance, support and promote the critical thinking and problem solving skills of its school-aged learners as they master Pennsylvania and national Common Core Curriculum standards.
MSA’s Board of Trustees believes that all scholars are capable of learning, given the right tools, environment, community and family support, and motivation. By providing each of these tools, MSA’s scholars will be successful learners. Also through innovation, MSA will transform the learning environment for its scholars in grades 5 through 8 -- who not only reside in the catchment area of the school, but who also comprise a diverse learning body from all over the City of Philadelphia, and from all ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds. Additionally, MSA will transform the property at 2950 Memphis Street into a community hub which serves as a gathering place for all. Besides offering an outstanding education to its middle school scholars, MSA will offer adult opportunities in literacy, GED, and job-readiness skills training as well.
