Madison Academic Magnet High School is a public high school in the Jackson Madison County School System located on Allen Avenue, in Jackson, Tennessee, replacing the former West Campus of Jackson Central-Merry High School. The school was started in the autumn of 2003. The school is selective with each graduating class having no more than 125 students and does not offer special education classes. Madison Academic Magnet High School replaced the former West Campus of Jackson-Central Merry .

The principal of Madison Academic is Janice Epperson (former principal of I.B. Tigrett middle school), and the vice-principal is Chad Guthrie. The school's course offerings are honors and college-prep courses. Although students do apply for admission, no academic criteria influences selection, as selection is through a lottery system. Once enrolled, students must maintain a C average to remain at the school.
