Mississippi School of the Arts is quite a special place. Thanks to the generosity of our state legislature, leaders and the people, Mississippi is able to provide an advanced, fine arts education for talented students from all over the state. Students audition during their sophomore year of high school, to be admitted their junior and senior years. Mississippi School of the Arts (MSA) is located on a former college campus in historic downtown Brookhaven, Mississippi.
