Golf Club

Golf Club Tees Off This Spring
The MSA campus is fortunate to have the advantage of being located on the Links of Crystal Lake Golf Course. The golf course and MSA has created a partnership to develop a golf club for MSA Students. With this partnership, students have the opportunity to participate in the MSA Golf team. The Links Golf Club provides the team the ability to gain instruction from one of the course's many golf pros.  

Literacy Book

 InsideOut Literacy Arts Project

In August of 2013 Rochelle Black, Oakland University Vice President of Government and Community Relations, reached out to MSA through the OU Public School Academies Office to create a partnership with the InsideOut Literacy Arts Project. The InsideOut Arts core program places professional writers in schools to conduct creative writing workshops that engage students’ imaginations and introduce them to the pleasure and power of writing. Our 3rd  and 6th grade classes created a publication to celebrate and display MSA students’ work in eye-catching, attractive paperback books. It brings our students’ work to the community at large, creating a sense of pride and interest in written expression of the highest quality. Every student and teacher received a free book from the project.
