    We offer three selective enrollment schools at PTHS D209: 
    Proviso East Mathematics and Science Academy (PEMSA) in Maywood 
    Proviso West Mathematics and Science Academy (PWMSA) in Hillside 
    Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy (PMSA) in Forest Park

    All three campuses provide the same rigorous MSA Program for students who meet the admissions criteria for acceptance. The only difference is the location.

    The Math & Science Academy (MSA) course pathway differs from Proviso East and Proviso West non-academy students in grades 9-10 in preparation for Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) classes in grades 11-12.  MSA students also take a required research course in preparation for AP & IB coursework as upperclassmen. Additionally, MSA students' grades are weighted, which boosts their GPA for colleges and scholarships.

    The Academies do not accept transfer students after freshman year. 

    If you are an incoming freshmen for school year 2023-2024 and are interested in applying for the MSA Program for the Class of 2027,
