Established as Mid-Michigan Public School Academy (MMPSA) in 1996 under the authorization of Central Michigan University’s Governor John Engler’s Center for Charter Schools, MMPSA was one of the first charter schools in Michigan. MMPSA changed their name to Mid-Michigan Leadership Academy in 2006. In addition to MMLA’s historic start as one of the first charter schools in Michigan, their campus also has some interesting history. MMLA is located on the historic site of the former Michigan Female College (1855-1869) and former Michigan School for the Blind’s (1879-1996) academic campus. This site was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2018.
