The Main Street Academy GA 17 (pre-packaged)

Welcome to TMSA

“We believe each student can and will learn.”

The Main Street Academy is a public, taxpayer­-funded, tuition-­free, K-­8 charter school. Located in College Park, TMSA is easily accessible to residents of East Point, Hapeville, College Park, and South Fulton County. TMSA provides its 858 children a unique and rigorous learning opportunity, and offers the choice of a true community school.

Our Mission

At The Main Street Academy, all students will receive a challenging and enriching education from a dedicated and student-focused staff in partnership with highly-involved parents. Students will leave The Main Street Academy with high expectations of themselves as they prepare for further education and become contributing members of their diverse communities.

Your Choice

Choosing TMSA means choosing to be part of a community that all works together to create an environment of academic excellence. Our families’ engagement is demonstrated loudest by the numbers: nearly 400 parents interact and participate through PTO and other parent­ focused events annually; up to 24 parents volunteer at TMSA daily; and more than 12,000 volunteer hours were logged for the 2014-2015 school year.

TMSA’s founders and supporters worked for many years to create a high-quality alternative to educate our most precious resource – our children. If you share our desire to see our community blossom, The Main Street Academy is the choice for you and your family.

Core Values

“We believe in the eight core values of Wisdom, Justice, Courage, Compassion, Hope, Respect, Responsibility, and Integrity.”

At the heart of The Main Street Academy are Eight Core Values:

A wise person makes good choices; waits for negative emotions, like anger, fear, or resentment, to pass before taking action; and considers the concerns of others, as well as his or her own.

A just person treats others as he or she would like to be treated; shows self-discipline in the face of his or her desires; and is concerned with the well-being of others.

A courageous person is not reckless but willing to take necessary risks when fear, embarrassment, or the opinion of others might otherwise discourage him or her from doing what is right and proper.

A compassionate person helps those who need help, not just those he or she likes; is forgiving of others who have, through weakness or meanness, behaved badly; and shows care and concern for all.

A hopeful person believes in him or herself; knows that hard work and good intentions can make a difference; and looks to the future with positive expectations and a plan for realizing those expectations.

A respectful person is kind to others, and polite and gracious in social situations; demonstrates not just tolerance for others but true regard for people of all faiths, cultures and backgrounds; and honors the achievements and qualities of others.

A responsible person keeps his or her word; takes care of work, projects, or duties assigned to or voluntarily accepted by him or her; and accepts his or her failures or mistakes without excuses or finger pointing and with a willingness to correct his or her behavior.

A person of integrity behaves with consistency and reliability; lives up to his or her principles; takes pride in doing right without being boastful or self­ promotional; and is true to himself or herself in matters of conscience.
