Student Life

MGA Student Council Officers for the 2015-16 school year.

Student life at MGA is complemented by the many options available to homeschooled students.  Because MGA students attend classes two days per week and are not in full-time school, they are considered ‘homeschooled’ by the state of Texas.  The flexible schedule made possible by a College-Style School®  allows MGA students to participate in many local organizations that serve the DFW homeschooling community.
A few of the social/elective activities in which MGA students participate:

          Park Days and Play Days

          Sports and PE Programs

          Speech and Debate Clubs

          High School Prom

          Choral Academy

          Student Council
