You can make the dreams of MPA scholars a reality!

MPA relies on the hard work and support of many individuals and institutions to ensure our scholars are on the path to and through college.

There are three ways to support our work:

Running schools requires supplies, furniture, books, and many other items that sometimes don’t fit into a tight school budget. MacDowell Preparatory Academy maintains a wish list of items that would be most helpful to the school. Please be sure to include your name and e-mail address on the gift receipt so we are able to thank you properly!
