A building housing the expanded Memorial Park Academy is currently under construction at 410 S. Greenville Avenue and is scheduled to open in August 2017. The building and a veteran’s memorial will be part of the Arzell Ball Center.

Many students have the desire and commitment to graduate but life circumstances, responsibilities or personal situations limit their options. While they know they need to be successful in their adult lives, the traditional high school schedule, structure and pace are not a good fit for some students on their path to graduation.

Likewise, some students face life, family or employment circumstances that necessitate they graduate as soon as possible, and they are willing to forgo some of the traditional aspects of high school in order to achieve their goal. They require an environment that understands and supports their need to accelerate the pace of coursework while upholding essential academic elements that determine future success. They need a structure that ensures individual student focus, that makes every minute of learning on-task and relevant. Every effort clearly leads to graduation.

Memorial Park Academy is a newly expanded choice program in Richardson ISD that allows students to earn high school credits while participating in a non-traditional school setting. Our students attend school for four hours per day, Monday-Friday. There is no cost to students. The program is a way for students to experience a rigorous, self-paced curriculum while working in a small group setting to ultimately receive a high school diploma.

There are two sessions offered to students: a morning session from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and an afternoon session from 12-4 p.m. Students will go through an interview process and have their transcripts evaluated by our counselor. We will do our best to offer students an opportunity to graduate with their desired graduation plan. Tutoring will be offered to struggling students. Students will be allowed to participate in graduation ceremonies from their home campuses and will receive a diploma from their home campus.

The staff of the Memorial Park Academy is experienced and dedicated to the success of our students. They will be there for support and guidance.

Interested? Apply by one of the following methods:
  • fill out an application and return it to your home school counselor
  • visit the Student Services team (Administrative Annex, 400 S. Greenville, Richardson) to apply in person
  • email Bill Gallo.
