2022 - 2023 Governing Board

“We believe students are best served through relationships with adults in their lives, particularly those at school and in their homes.”

The Main Street Academy’s (TMSA) Governing Board is responsible for the development of the mission, vision and strategy for the school, as well as overseeing the key areas of finances, culture, and academics.

Beginning in December 2006, a dedicated group of concerned citizens formed the school’s Founding Governing Board and worked diligently for four years to bring a new charter school to the community. The Main Street Academy, a Fulton County Schools public charter school, opened in August 2010. TMSA is a public K-8 public charter school located in College Park, GA, and is easily accessible to the residents of Fulton County.

Please feel free to join us for our committee  Governing Board meetings. Please refer to our school's online calendar or CharterBoards for monthly meeting locations and times.
