From Morgan Park Academy

Founded in 1873, Morgan Park Academy is driven by a mission to engage the whole child, inspire the independent learner, and prepare the global leader of tomorrow to make a positive difference in the world.

Class sizes are intentionally kept small so that students can speak up and stand out, developing genuine relationships with teachers that foster achievement and create a sense of community.

MPA students broaden and deepen their thinking beyond the boundaries of campus, city, and country, emerging as confident young adults, original thinkers, and creative problem solvers. They progress into the next stages of their lives well-prepared for advanced college coursework and poised to meet and exceed the high expectations that they refined at MPA.

Independent Thinkers, Global Leaders

academic spotlight

We show our students the world, integrating a perspective-widening, global focus. Scores of students travel abroad each year, and on campus we interpret events and ideas in their larger, global context, challenging students to step outside their comfort zones and their zip codes. Learning with peers from diverse cultures and nationalities, students prepare to meet the challenges of a global world.
