WHAT IS THE MAIN STREET ACADEMY? The Main Street Academy offers parents of the Tri-Cities and South Fulton region the choice of a true community school. TMSA provides K-8 children (growing one grade per year to K-8) a unique and rigorous learning opportunity. TMSA requires uniforms, teaches Spanish on all grade levels, requires Parental Involvement and offers an extended school day that allows us to strive for higher academic goals.

The Main Street Academy is founded in the community to offer parents a choice of a school where the community-at-large works together to create an environment that promotes academic excellence. In addition to the academics, students learn about character with our eight Core Values, a sense of community, and how to achieve the goal of becoming a contributing member of society.

The Main Street Academy fosters a strong sense of community. We embrace and celebrate the cultural diversity of the Tri-Cities area, and encourage students to develop into global thinkers and life-long learners.

Parents, students and The Main Street Academy team of educators partner together to create a uniquely administered community school developed for every student’s achievement and success.
Parents play an important and active role in their students’ education. With teachers and administrators, parents are part of the learning team that monitors and advances their child’s educational future. Working in partnership with EdisonLearning, who brings nearly 20 years of experience and innovation to public education; The Main Street Academy is a locally run public charter school created by a group of citizens who live, work or own businesses in the Tri-Cities area of Atlanta.


Charter schools are free public schools that have greater flexibility to respond to their students’ individual needs. Charter schools have certified teachers, challenging academics, and performance-based accountability measures – in many cases, greater than those for traditional schools.


Infused by our eight core values, The Main Street Academy encourages the formation of a positive learning culture to guide the learning experience: Wisdom, Justice, Courage, Compassion, Hope, Respect, Responsibility & Integrity.

Parents volunteered a total of 12,717 hours during the 2011-’12 school year. All parents sign an agreement to volunteer (15 hours for two-parent families, 10 hours for one-parent families annually). PTO meetings and other special events draw up to 400 attendees. Parents promise to read with their children for 15 minutes daily.


I pledge today to do my best,
In reading, math and all the rest.
I promise to obey the rules,
In my class and in my school.
I respect myself and others too,
I expect the best in all I do.
I am here to learn each and every day,
I am the proud image of TMSA!
