Morgan Park Academy, Chicago:
Founded in 1873, Morgan Park Academy (MPA) is a co-educational, college preparatory, independent day school dedicated to preparing students for college and inspiring them to strive for excellence and realize their full potential, both academically and as individuals. We are located in the Morgan Park residential area of Chicago in Cook County. Families come to MPA from communities throughout Chicago, the southern and western suburbs in Cook, DuPage, Kankakee, and Will counties, as well as northwest Indiana. Our highly motivated faculty is complemented by a stimulating, time-tested curriculum. We have some of the smallest class sizes among the top schools in Illinois.
Morgan Park Academy provides a continuous education from Preschool through 12th grade. While many of our students join us somewhere in the middle of our thirteen-year program, all students benefit from the open communication between our teachers and the sequential academic plan that develops our students intellectually, socially and physically, throughout their academic career.
Lower School Program:
The Lower School's goals are to develop and foster a positive self-image, master basic educational skills and academic habits, and to balance intellectual, creative and physical growth, all to help students develop a lifelong love of learning.
Emphasis is placed on linking reading and writing, promoting an understanding of math concepts, and using science and social studies to expand the child's perception of his or her environment.
Middle School Program:
This is when our students apply the skills and habits learned within the nurturing environment of our Lower School to develop the independent talents that will carry them into and through high school and college.
The Middle School employs an advisory program. Each student chooses a faculty advisor with whom they regularly meet to discuss academic and other issues. This program, added to ongoing studies, arts, sports and community interests, round out the personalized curriculum and helps determine strengths and interests.
Upper School Program:
The Upper School is the culmination of college preparation at Morgan Park Academy. Courses are taught at three levels: college preparatory, honors and advanced placement (AP). Learning is authentic and engaging. The dialogues and interchanges between the faculty and students, all set against an ivy-league style campus, are true hallmarks of MPA.
Step into any classroom and listen. Discuss any subject with any one of our high school students. In these moments you will hear and learn what sets MPA apart. Our high school students are, quite simply, some of the most engaging, most interesting people you will ever meet. It's no wonder MPA's SAT and placement rate are the envy of Chicago high schools, and why more than 80 top-name colleges visit our campus each year.
After & Before Care (ABC) Program Program:
The After and Before Care Program (ABC), is an extended day care program that services Preschool thru Middle School students during non-school hours. This program is provided as a service to parents and is staffed by MPA faculty and other qualified persons. The approximate pupil-teacher ratio is 10:1 for PK and K, and 15:1 for Lower School and Middle School.
Interscholastic sports are an integral part of the total program at MPA. We believe that each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs. MPA prides itself on teaching the whole child. We offer many choices for our athletes here at MPA.
