Governing Board

“We believe students are best served through relationships with adults in their lives, particularly those at school and in their homes.”

The Main Street Academy’s (TMSA) Governing Board is responsible for the development of the mission, vision and strategy for the school, as well overseeing the key areas of finance, culture, and communications.

Beginning in December 2006, a dedicated group of concerned citizens formed the school’s Founding Board, and worked diligently for four years to bring a new charter school to the community. The Main Street Academy, a Fulton County charter School, opened in August 2010. TMSA is a public K-8 charter school located in College Park and easily accessible to residents of East Point, Hapeville, College Park & South Fulton County.

Please feel free to join us for our Governing Board meetings. Please refer to our calendar for location and time.
