Classes begin for students at Meeting Street Academy

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

It's back to the books for a downtown private school that helps kids from low income families.

The school year will officially begin today for 120 students at Meeting Street Academy.

Meeting Street Academy focuses on providing top notch education to students and families living in Charleston and surrounding areas who would not normally have access to the same opportunities.

Students start their education at age three at MSA instead of five. Families also play a key role at the school, as they are expected to sign a contract ensuring their involvement in school functions.

Parents must also pay $2 per day for their child's tuition costs.

The school operates on an extended school year from July to June. It also serves three meals a day to their students and provides medical and dental care through a partnership with MUSC.

The private school is now in its sixth year of operation. The school runs pre-kindergarten through 5th grade.
