THE MATH & SCIENCE ACADEMY (MSA) ADMISSIONS WINDOW FOR THE CLASS OF 2027 HAS CLOSED.
Student applicants and their families have been notified of their admission status and campus placement.
All campus placements are final. There are no transfers.
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.
For more information, please see the topics on the left-hand side of this web page or contact the Proviso campus directly with questions.
