History

Marshall Academy was the first private school in the state of Mississippi to receive a charter. In 1965, this charter was granted as a “non-profit school association, known as Marshall County Educational Foundation, Inc.”, with twenty-three families comprising the original membership in 1968. The Foundation began its first school year on September 3, 1968, with an enrollment of 150 students in grades 1-8. Temporary facilities were leased from the First Baptist, First Methodist, and the Christ Episcopal Churches in Holly Springs. While the Foundation was still in its infancy, it assumed the name “Marshall Academy” and became an accredited private school. In 1969, grades 10 – 12 were added, along with a kindergarten for pre-school children.

The Board of Directors is most grateful to the people who have given so generously of their time, money, and talents. We are looking forward to the future with the hope and expectation of great things to come.
