What is MYSA School?


A one room school house model for the 21st century


Crowdsourced curriculum from around the world

A one room school house model for the 21st century.

We are currently enrolling students in grades K-12.

We teach most of the same skills and content taught in other schools just in a different way.

Utilizing the resources in, and partnering with, the local community to learn.


 MYSA School is a pioneering school based on the rapidly growing “micro school” model that is emerging in many places in the United States and globally. Micro schools are modern day and forward thinking versions of the one-room school house. Similar to other micro and lab schools, MYSA School is a hybrid model that combines two distinct, complementary, methods of education. The first method is a hands-on, project-based interdisciplinary and cooperative system where students engage in group work and solve real world problems. The second method utilizes individually customized academic learning platforms where each student’s classes and lessons are drawn from an extensive menu of online lessons, programs and resources from around the world.

In this way, MYSA School combines the best of both worlds: a tight-knit small learning community that emphasizes the building of interpersonal skills, and at the same time, crowd-sourcing via the Internet the best academic lessons, classes, and programs from around the globe – personally tailored for each student.
