McKay Campus

The McKay Complex includes McKay Arts Academy, a pre-K to grade 8 innovation school that provides a safe and inclusive learning environment for a diverse group of students. While located on the university campus, McKay is part of the Fitchburg Public School District.

The university uses part of the complex for classes, and many students majoring in education perform their student-teaching at McKay. These teacher preparation programs allow university students to apply what they are learning in their own studies toward public school classrooms, enhancing their understanding of educational theory and practice, better preparing them for successful teaching careers.
