Student Enrollment

Online via ActiveParent

Welcome to Student Enrollment

It’s now time for student enrollment. For faster processing, the Mississippi School of the Arts utilizes a third-party system for online enrollment called ActiveParent. Student Enrollment is only for those who have been officially accepted into Mississippi School of the Arts.

The online enrollment system can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection. Therefore, it is not necessary for you to be located at a specific place. If you do not have a home computer, using a family member or friend’s laptop or desktop computer is acceptable. You may also check with your local school district or public library. Additionally, enrollment will work on your smartphone.

Incoming Juniors / Rising Seniors

  • Incoming juniors (accepted sophomores), please complete online enrollment prior to New Student Day. New students will receive a special code for enrollment purposes. You must have auditioned and have been accepted to MSA to receive an “ActiveCode.” The code will be sent to you after submitting your letter of intent to attend MSA. Please complete online enrollment prior to new student day. Otherwise, parents will be required to complete enrollment onsite at MSA.
  • Rising seniors (current MSA juniors), please complete enrollment prior to end-of-year checkout or when advised by school administration. You’ll receive instructions for this process. Please contact Admissions for support.

ActiveParent Online Enrollment

Begin Online Enrollment

Have your assigned ActiveCode ready. You’ll redeem the code and create your ActiveParent ID to begin enrollment. If you’re a rising senior, simply enter your ActiveCode received by school administration.

Login to Continue Enrollment

Login here if you paused and need to continue new student enrollment. Your ActiveCode is not required to continue. Please login using your newly created ActiveParent ID.
