Mooresville is proud of its long history of providing first class educational opportunities to area families. The Mooresville school system actually began in 1861, with the establishment of the Friends Academy. The original Academy school building, one of the first high schools in Indiana, was a boarding school. The students rented rooms in local homes. This historic school building, which still stands on the Newby Memorial Elementary School campus, has been fully restored and is included on the National Historic Register. The building is now a local history museum. The Newby campus also includes the "old Newby gym" or the "Newby Dome." This gym was built in the early 1900s with contributions from Mooresville residents, who contributed $100 each to help pay for the construction of the facility.
